Police appeal for information after wedding jewellery stolen in burglary

Jewellery stolen during a burglary in Bradley Stoke, Bristol.

Police are appealing for witnesses and information after a daytime burglary in which a quantity of gold jewellery was stolen.

It happened in Stanley Mead, Bradley Stoke, between 8.15am and 5.45pm on Tuesday 4th October. Thieves forced the rear doors to get into the house and also stole foreign currency including South African rand, US dollars, Singapore dollars and euros.

The stolen jewellery is of great sentimental value, with some of the pieces having been bought for the victims’ wedding.

The jewellery included a child’s beaded chain necklace with a locket, a 24-inch chain with a heart locket, a shorter chain with a heart locket, etched gold bangles, gold & diamond stud earrings and a gold & pearl necklace.

Further photos of some of the items stolen may be viewed here.

Anyone with any information which could help police enquiries into the theft, especially anyone who saw anything suspicious in the area on Tuesday, can get in touch through the Contact page on the police website, or by calling 101, quoting reference 5216221065.

Alternatively call the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111. They never ask your name or trace your call.

Police advise anyone with jewellery of significant sentimental value to install a safe and keep photographs and detailed descriptions of the items.

They also recommend joining Neighbourhood Watch, as members of these schemes are around six times less likely to be burgled.
