A Southampton student had £30,000 worth of watches, handbags and electrical goods stolen from their student flat.

A University of Southampton student had their flat ransacked in Archers Road between 13th and 16th May. The student had left Southampton for several days to visit friends and returned to find seven handbags and a £10,000 Patek Phillipe watch stolen. The bags included a small purple Chanel clutch and a black Chanel shoulder bag.

They also managed to rob a laptop, iPad and a haul of jewellery including necklaces and earring designed by VCA.

It is believed thieves gained entry to the flat in St Anne’s Gate through an unlocked window and stole the bags and watch which were on display on a shelf.
