A ROLEX has been stolen during a 'gathering' at a Poole home.

The watch was stolen from an address in the Wallisdown area where police say a large number of people were gathered.

It is described as an 18 carat rose gold Rolex Oyster Perpetual watch with a black face and chocolate bezel.

Officers investigating the theft, which occurred on Saturday, May 18, are issuing an image of the stolen item and appealing for information.

Police community support investigator Adam Cleaver, of Poole police, said: “We are carrying out a number of enquiries to try and trace this watch and identify who is responsible for the theft.

“To assist my investigation, I would like to hear from anyone who has come across a watch matching the description given being offered for sale locally or online in suspicious circumstances.”
