A man has been left devastated after burglars broke into his home and stole his family jewellery.

Jaswinder Grewal had just left the house for a matter of hours and came back to find his house had been ransacked.

The 36-year-old of Carriage Drive, Kettering, said the jewellery was probably worth thousands of pounds but he could not put a price on it.

He said: “I only left my house at nine in the morning and was only out for a few hours I came home at 12 and I had been burgled.

“The least scariest place is supposed to be your own home and you’re not supposed to be scared when you’re in it.”

Mr Grewal believes his home was targeted on Tuesday, November 12, because the burglars believed there was expensive Asian jewellery inside.

He said that he feels he must have been targeted as downstairs was not touched, but upstairs was “ransacked” and only jewellery was stolen.

A spate of burglaries targeted properties containing Asian jewellery in Northampton this year but police are not connecting the incidents.

A police spokesman said: “We are not connecting this to the Asian gold robberies in Northampton at this moment but we are obviously still investigating and we are keeping our options open.”

Witnesses, or anyone with information about the burglary, can call Northamptonshire Police on 101.
