6:20am Saturday 27th October 2012 in News
A RARE Breitling watch worth more than £2,000 has been stolen in a Hampshire burglary.
The watch, a Royal Marines special edition with the words “Royal Marines Commando” on the back, was taken from a house in Rumbridge Street, Totton.
Jewellery, bank cards, an Acer laptop and cash from a children's money box was also stolen.
Police believe the property could have been removed in pillow cases and a distinctive black and bottle green gym bag with the words “Royal Marines” on the side.
The raid occurred on Monday sometime between 8am and 7.15pm while the victim - who spent six years in the Marines - was out at work.
Detective Constable Anne Attwell said: “We are especially interested in hearing from anyone who saw strangers in the area between 5.30pm and 7.15pm, particularly if they saw anyone with a Royal Marines gym bag.”
