POLICE are hunting raiders who got away with watches worth £10,000 after breaking into a house in Chilworth.

Officers say the burglars forced open French doors to a ground-floor bedroom at the property in Pinelands Road. They also used a ladder to get on to a balcony at the house on Friday night last week.

Three wristwatches were stolen – a black Breitling Navitimer worth £5,000, a black Chanel J12 with a diamond bezel valued at £3,000 and a stainless steel Oceanaut Seapro with a yellow face and black bezel.

Several hundred pounds in cash was also stolen.
