Merseyside Police is appealing for information and issuing images after a burglary in Crosby in which jewellery was stolen.
Between 2pm and 9pm on Saturday, November 4, entry was forced to a house on Strathmore Drive and items of jewellery were stolen, including rings, a bracelet, necklaces and Beatrix Potter 50 pence pieces.
Gardening tools were left inside the house and are suspected of having been used to gain entry. Forensic and witness enquiries are ongoing and anyone with information is urged to come forward.
Inspector Sue Stribling said: “Some of the items stolen have a great deal of sentimental value, which has understandably caused distress to the owners. I’m sure people would recognise these items if they have seen them or been offered them so please do the right thing.
“I want to appeal to local jewellery shops or pawnbrokers, or any member of the public, if they have been offered any of these items for sale to get in touch and let us know so we can reunited them with their rightful owner.
“I would also ask anyone who was in the vicinity of Strathmore Road on the afternoon and evening of 4 November and saw anyone acting suspiciously to get in touch.”
Anyone with information is asked to call 101 quoting incident number 0517282382 or the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously and for free on 0800 555 111 or via their online form: https://crimestoppers-uk.org/give-information/give-information-online.
