A distinctive set of Persian coins were among a number of items taken during a burglary in south Belfast last Wednesday, May 29.

The burglary took place in the Piney Hills area between 11am and 3pm.

An array of jewellery was taken, along with the 'Louis Vuitto' bag it was kept in.

Among the items reported stolen are a number of diamond necklaces, rings and bracelets, an antique female Swiss rectangular watch/chain armband in silver and a quantity of US dollars.

Constable Bryan Beacom appealed for anyone with information to come forward.

“I want to appeal to anyone who saw any suspicious activity between 11am and 3pm that day in Piney Hills to contact us," he said.

"I would also appeal to anyone who is offered jewellery, or any of the other items reported stolen, for sale in suspicious circumstances to call us on 101, quoting reference number 1192 of 29/05/19.

"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."
