Detectives in Derry/Londonderry are appealing for information following the report of a burglary at a property in the Sandringham Drive area of Prehen on Friday 23 March. 

Detective Constable Donnell said: “Police received a report around 4:50pm on Friday that at some point between 8:15am and 4:40pm that day entry had been forced to the property. 

A number of items of jewellery were reported stolen, including a gold Seiko watch with the engraving ‘Ciaran’,  which is of sentimental value to the victim. 

I am appealing to anyone who was in the Sandringham Drive area on Friday between 8:15am and 4:40pm and noticed any suspicious activity, or is offered items of jewellery in suspicious circumstances to contact Detectives at Strand Road on the non-emergency number 101, quoting reference number 857 of 23/03/18. 

Alternatively, information can also be provided to the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 which is 100% anonymous and gives people the power to speak up and stop crime.”
