Police are appealing for information and witnesses following a burglary in Welwyn last week.

One or more burglars broke into a house in Canonsfield between 8.30am and 5.23pm on Wednesday, January 9 by smashing a rear patio door.

They ransacked the house and stole cash, passports and jewellery including a silver Pandora charm bracelet, a bangle, a chain bracelet, a ring, earrings, a white ring, a pink and gold charm bracelet, and pink and gold chain necklace and a gold cross pendant.

It is believed the burglar or burglars were disturbed by the occupant returning home, and ran away through the back door.

Detective Constable Kylie Davies, who is investigating, said: “I am appealing for anyone who might have seen what happened, or suspicious activity, to get in touch.

“Similarly, if you believe you’ve been offered any of the jewellery for sale, I would like to hear from you.”

Anyone with information should call the non-emergency number 101 or email kylie.davies@herts.pnn.police.uk, quoting crime reference 41/2792/19.
