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.

Investigator Linda Bunton, from the Welwyn Hatfield Local Crime Unit, said: "We've been carrying out extensive enquiries into this burglary and we've now received photos of jewellery that was taken.

You may also want to watch:

"The victims are understandably devastated so I am urging the public to take a good look and get in touch if you recognise the items or have been offered them for sale.

"Similarly, I would like to hear from anyone who might have witnessed the burglary or suspicious activity in the area. Perhaps you saw the vehicle used? Did you capture it on dash cam footage?

"If you have seen the jewellery, been offered it for sale, or have any other information about the burglary that might help our investigation, please get in touch."

If you think you can help, call the non-emergency number 101 or email linda.bunton@herts.pnn.police.uk, quoting crime reference 41/112406/19.
