A man has been charged following a high-value break-in and theft from a business in Guardbridge.

During the early hours of Sunday 28th July, entry was forced to the premises of an antiques dealer and a substantial quantity of jewellery and other items were stolen from within.

As a result of extensive investigation carried out by Levenmouth CID, search warrants were executed at two addresses in Dundee on Friday 9th August and various pieces of jewellery and other valuables, worth over £60,000, were recovered.

A 48-year-old is due to appear at Dundee Sheriff Court on Monday 12th August.

Detective Constable Mark Millar from Levenmouth CID said, "We're delighted to have recovered large amounts of the stolen property from the Guardbridge store, as these pieces have been collected over several years and were a huge loss to the owners, both financially and from a sentimental point view.

"We treat all reports of acquisitive crime with the utmost seriousness and through Operation Principle, we investigate every incident with the utmost seriousness to bring offenders to justice."
