Detectives in Derry are investigating a report of a burglary in the city earlier this week during which jewellery was stolen.  

The burglary at Ashburn Avenue was reported to police shortly after 8:40pm on Thursday (10th September). Entry was forced between 8pm and the time it was reported to police. 

Rooms in the house were ransacked, and a sum of money and jewellery were reported stolen. The items of jewellery stolen include an engagement ring. 

Detective Constable Edel Conway said: "This has been a very distressing ordeal for the victims, and I would appeal to anyone who may have been in the area between 8pm and 8:45pm on Thursday night, and saw any suspicious activity, to get in touch. I would also urge anyone who is offered a ring similar to the ring reported stolen in suspicious circumstances to call us."
