Following a burglary in Welwyn Garden City, police have released photos of stolen jewellery and are urging the public to get in touch if they recognise the items.
At around 6.30pm on Saturday, December 14, a person or persons gained access to a Coltsfoot property after smashing a patio door.
Once inside, they conducted a messy search and stole around twenty items of Asian gold jewellery - including necklaces, rings, earrings and bracelets worth thousands of pounds.
It is believed they arrived and left the area in a blue Audi estate vehicle, possibly an A6 or S6.
