Detectives investigating a burglary in the area of Brook Way and Bradley Stoke Way in Bradley Stoke, on Saturday 21st December, have released photographs of some of the items of jewellery stolen in the break-in.
It happened between 3.30pm and 6.15pm, when thieves forced a window to get into the house.
The stolen jewellery (pictured, click to enlarge) includes necklaces, earrings, rings, bracelets and chains.
DC Alastair Binnie of Avon and Somerset Police said:
“This break in is obviously very upsetting for the family as the jewellery is of great sentimental value to them, and I’d ask anyone with any information which can help us recover the items to call me on 101, quoting reference 127358/13.”
“I’d also like to hear from you if you were in the area around Brook Way and Bradley Stoke Way on Saturday 21st December – you may have seen something which could help our investigation.”
Police say the family has been visited by neighbourhood PCSOs and the Bobby Van crime prevention carpenter and offered support and security advice. They add that they have had a number of reported burglaries in South Gloucestershire where the thieves seem to have been looking for high value jewellery.
Owners of valuable jewellery are advised to keep it in a safe which has been tested to ‘Sold Secure’ standard. The police also suggest taking a set of photographs and keeping those in a safe place with descriptions of the items.
DC Binnie added:
“Please call us straight away if you see anyone acting suspiciously around a neighbour’s house or garden. We’d prefer to get a call made in good faith rather than have another family come home to find they’ve been burgled.”
Anyone with any information which could help enquiries is asked to call the South Gloucestershire Priority Crime Team on 101. Alternatively ring the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111. They never ask your name or trace your call.
