A man has been charged after jewellery and other valuables worth more than £60,000 were stolen from an antiques dealer in Fife.

The business was broken into in the early hours of Sunday July 28.

Following an investigation and searches at two addresses in Dundee, a "large amount" of stolen items were recovered.

A 48-year-old is expected to appear at Dundee Sheriff Court on Monday.

Detective Constable Mark Millar said: "We're delighted to have recovered large amounts of the stolen property from the Guardbridge store as these pieces have been collected over several years and were a huge loss to the owners, both financially and from a sentimental point view.

"We treat all reports of acquisitive crime with the utmost seriousness and through Operation Principle, we investigate every incident with the utmost seriousness to bring offenders to justice."
