We are appealing for information after a £6,000 Rolex was stolen in a burglary in Newcastle.

Between 1.30pm and 8.20pm last Thursday intruders have forced entry to a house on Beaminster Way in Kenton through a rear window.

The house was unoccupied at the time and has been ransacked during which a vintage Rolex watch worth £6,000 has been stolen.

The watch in question was a vintage Rolex Oyster Perpetual Explorer 1016 model and is of great sentimental value to its owner.

Enquiries into the incident are ongoing and we are now asking for the public's help to trace those responsible for the burglary.

Sgt Dave Lumsden, of the Central Burglary Team, said: "This item was of great sentimental value to the occupant of the property and they have been left devastated by this burglary.

"We need to trace those responsible for this incident which has happened in the middle of the day in a busy neighbourhood.

"Members of the public may well have seen those responsible so if you were in the area last Thursday and saw people behaving suspiciously then get in touch.

"If you think you know the people responsible, or have seen the watch in question, then call us so we can return the watch to its owner.

"They are prepared to offer a reward in return for its safe return so we would encourage those with information to do the right thing and get in touch."

Anyone with information should contact police by calling the burglary team on 101 extension 62764, or on email at, quoting log 1139 19/10/17.
