A 33-year-old man has been arrested in connection with a raid on a jewellers shop in East Renfrewshire.
Robbers targeted Eric N Smith jewellers on Ayr Road, in Newton Mearns, at about 14:30 on Saturday.
One robber threatened staff with a "large bladed weapon" and two other men smashed several displays of expensive watches.
The gang then made off with Rolex watches believed to be valued at £200,000.
The arrested man is expected to appear at Paisley Sheriff Court on Tuesday.
