3:30pm Wednesday 6th February 2013 in News
BROMSGROVE police are investigating the theft of jewellery and electrical items stolen during a daytime burglary at a town property.
It happened between 9am-4pm on February 4, at a home in Stourbridge Road near Perryfields Road.
Thieves broke into the rear of the property, made an untidy search and stole several items of costume jewellery.
Among the items taken were jewellery made by Pilgrim, a gold cross and gold watch which belonged to the victim’s grandmother, a white gold cross with diamonds on it, a selection of watches including a Gucci one, the victim's engagement ring, a gents Garmin GPS watch, a Kindle Fire HD tablet, an Apple iPod in a blue penguin rubber case, a Kodak Easyshare touch digital camera, a Panasonic camcorder, an Asus Notebook and a TomTom sat nav.
Detective Constable Tony Flannagan said: "As this is a busy road and the burglary happened during the daytime we are hoping someone may have seen the burglars in the area.
"It is always distressing for a homeowner to be burgled and often made worse when items of sentimental value are stolen, so we are eager to hear from anyone who may have information that can lead us to recovering the stolen items."
Anyone with information about the burglary is asked to call DC Flannagan on 101, quoting incident 135-N-040213, or ring Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
As part of a force wide initiative Citadel, aimed at reducing burglaries, police are urging people to be on the look out and to call them as soon as possible if they see any suspicious activity.
For non-emergency calls ring 101 but for emergencies, such as reporting a crime as it happens, people should always ring 999.
