The theft happened between 10am and 11.45am on Wednesday, October 22, at an address in Cadwell Lane when the offenders forced open a patio door at the rear of the house.

The thieves then proceeded to take a series of items, worth thousands of pounds, including a gold necklace with a locket, which has another locket inside of it and has Arabic written in it and a thin gold necklace with golden beads, both pictured.

Nobody was in the house during the burglary.

Police want to speak to a man who was seen in the area around the time of the burglary as he may be able to help them with the investigation.

Det Con Steve Cook is investigating and said: “The victims of this burglary have been left very upset by what has happened as the items stolen hold great sentimental value to them. I would therefore ask anyone who is offered the items for sale, or knows of their whereabouts, to contact me as soon as possible.
