Coimbatore: Gold ornaments weighing nearly 35 sovereigns were stolen from a house in Balaji Nagar in Malumichampatti here on Monday.

K Duraisamy (53), who works in a textile unit in Malumichampatti, went for duty around 3.30pm and wife Shanthi, a teacher at Vadapudur government school, returned around 4.45pm . To her dismay, she had found that that front door lock was broken, rushed inside and ornaments, including two gold chains of about 7 sovereigns, a necklace, bangles and a diamond ring were missing, police said.

A dog squad and fingerprint experts rushed to the site. A special team was formed to nab the burglars. Police said the miscreants kept track of the movements in the house and made use of the one-and-a-half-hour gap for the deed.
