Witnesses are being sought after an expensive classic watch was stolen from a property in Folkestone.

The victim, a man in his seventies, reported that an unknown man called at his address in Foord Road between 9am and midday on Thursday 6 May 2021, asking to come in to check the gas and fire alarms were working.

During the visit, the victim left the man alone for a short time. The victim then realised after the man had gone that a gold watch was missing from the property.

The Omega Sea Master watch is described as being over fifty-years-old, and includes a bracelet style strap in nine carat gold.

The suspect is described as around fifty, five feet seven inches tall, with short grey hair and greyish facial stubble. He wore glasses, and light-coloured trousers and a shirt.

Anyone with information regarding the burglary or the whereabouts of the missing watch, should call Kent Police on 01843 222289 quoting 46/76568/21.
