Published 23 December 2019

Police in Dundee are appealing for information following a theft by housebreaking in Overton Gardens.

Sometime between 7.25pm on Saturday, 21 December, and 1.15am on Sunday, 22 December, 2019, entry was forced to the property and a safe containing sums of cash and various items of jewellery were stolen.

The safe is described as silver, grey in colour with a digital code lock and around 18ins by 12ins in size.

PC Gary Cargill from Lochee police station said:

“Housebreakings in this area are rare and this has understandably left the home owners shaken and distressed.

“Enquires are progressing and I would urge anyone who was in the area of Overton Gardens, Charleston Drive or Arran Drive on Saturday night and saw anything unusual or suspicious to contact police immediately.

“Although the property was secure, I would take this opportunity to remind home owners to review their security - make sure you keep your doors and windows locked at all times.”

Anyone with information is asked to contact Police Scotland on 101, quoting incident 0327 of Sunday, 22 December, 2019 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
