Police are hunting bogus workmen in the Grangemouth area

The incident happened on Wednesday, July 20, when two men gained access to the house on Dalgrain Road and removed a number of items of jewellery. When caught in the act, the men ran from the address onto Clyde Street.

Although upset, the victim was not harmed during the incident.

Both men involved in this crime were seen to be wearing high-visibility vests which had writing on the back. A small white van, possibly with 09 on the registration plate, was used by them.
