A GANG of thieves waited for a woman to leave her home before nicking valuable Asian gold jewellery.

The 58-year-old's property was targeted in Blackhill on Friday between 5.45 pm and 6.20 pm.

Police said the house in Craigendmuir Street was broken into by four people who stole a four-figure sum of jewellery before driving off in a car, similar to a Volkswagen Golf Estate, in the direction of Hogganfield Street.

There is no description of the gang other than they were wearing dark clothing.

Constable John Grant, Govan Police Station, Glasgow, said: “From CCTV, it appears that this car had been driving round the area when the occupants saw the 58-year-old female householder leave the house.  Once out of sight, they’ve broken into the house and taken the jewellery, described as Asian in quality - 18ct and 24 ct, comprising necklaces, bangles, and ear-rings.

“A member of the public heard an unusual noise at the house and called the householder and police but the housebreakers had made off before their arrival back at the house.

“Nothing else was taken apart from the jewellery, so we believe that this house was targeted specifically.

“Again, from CCTV, we can see there were a few people and some cars passing the address around the time of the break-in, so we would appeal to anyone, particularly a woman pushing a pram and a man on his phone, who were in the area – who may have information that will assist our enquiry come forward. We are also keen to get dash-cam footage from cars in the area as well.”
