Photos released in bid to trace 'sentimental' rings stolen in Christchurch burglary
POLICE have released images of rings of “great sentimental value” that were stolen in a burglary at a Christchurch home in a bid to reunite them with their owner.
The victim had alerted officers after discovering the items of jewellery were missing from her address in the Smugglers Lane area during the evening of Thursday 15th April.
It is believed that burglars had taken them sometime from Thursday 11th February up to that date.
Now people are being urged to come forward if they recognise the rings or believe they may have seen them offered for sale in suspicious circumstances.
PC Charlotte Fowler said: “Our enquiries are continuing into this incident and I am now in a position to release images of some of the stolen items.
“I am appealing to anyone who has seen the items of jewellery pictured for sale locally in unusual circumstances to please get in touch.”
She added: “The jewellery is of great sentimental value to the victim and I am therefore doing all I can to locate it and identify who was responsible.”
Anyone with information should contact the Dorset force on 101, quoting crime reference number 55210059386, or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
