An anonymous donor is offering a £10,000 reward for any information leading to the recovery of several items of jewellery taken from a house in Burton Green during a burglary.
The burglary occurred on the afternoon of Tuesday February 21 at an address in Red Lane.
The burglars stole valuables including electronic goods and two sets of car keys.
However, it is the safe return of the jewellery, many pieces of which belonged to a late relative, that has prompted this reward.
Pauline Hadley, Crimestoppers regional manager, said: “Burglary causes immense distress to victims who are forced to deal with the aftermath of having their home invaded and incur the loss of often sentimental, important items.
“This is a particularly upsetting case where several irreplaceable items belonging, or bought by, a late relative have been stolen.”
The stolen items include:
Mens wedding band: 22ct wide barrel shaped gold band possibly showing signs of gold bain when previously worn on chain.
Ladies watch: Jaeger le Coultre reverso model 266.844 / Serial no 1879569.
Swarovski necklace: Vintage Swarovski choker necklace gold plated with crystal round and heart shaped links. Part of a set.
White gold bracelet. 9ct white gold 2ct diamond bracelet
Diamond ring: pear-shaped solitaire diamond with white gold band with three claw mount.
Diamond ring: engagement ring, 12 stone diamond cluster with 18ct gold. Each stone 0.04ct.
Ladies wedding band: 9ct gold diamond cut wedding ring. Multifaceted (engraved pattern) with wide barrel shaped band.
The reward is valid for three months and will only qualify if information is passed to Crimestoppers’ 0800 555 111 number or anonymous online form at www.crimestoppers-uk.org.
