Jewellery, antique coins and cash stolen in raid on home
Police urge specialist antique dealers to be vigilant about what they are offered.
Jewellery, antique coins and cash worth several thousands of pounds have been stolen from a family home.
The house in Duke Street, Denny, near Falkirk, was raided on Monday between 7.15pm and 9.35pm.
Detectives are working to draw up a full inventory of the stolen goods, which include valuable coins from "across the world".
They have urged specialist antique dealers to be on their guard if offered coins or jewellery.
Detective inspector Jim Thomson, of Falkirk CID, said: "The homeowner is absolutely devastated at the theft of his belongings including a large number of extremely valuable coins from various countries across the world.
"It is likely those responsible will look to sell these coins on and I would ask specialist dealers and second hand retailers to be vigilant for anyone offering such items in the near future.
"If you have any suspicions then please contact police immediately.
"I would also urge anyone who remembers seeing any suspicious activity in Duke Street on Monday evening, or who has information relevant to this inquiry, to also get in touch."
