Photo appeal to trace ‘food fight’ jewellery thieves

PHOTOS of gold jewellery swiped in a raid on a village home have been released in a bid to trace the “sentimental” items.

The thieves broke into a home in Brookmans Park and stole jewellery and car keys – as well as having an apparent food fight downstairs.

Now, police are releasing a photograph of a gold bracelet which matches a necklace stolen during the raid.

The haul include:

• 18ct yellow gold earrings ‘domed, convex ribs’

Detective constable Emma Summers, investigating, said: “The items stolen are of high sentimental value and the owners are keen to get them back.

“During the burglary eggs and other foodstuffs were thrown around the kitchen and dining room – an unusually unpleasant and apparently malicious act.

“It is so cruel to put the victims through such an ordeal just before Christmas and I would urge people for help in returning these items to their owners.”

The burglary happened between 7pm and 11pm on Friday, December 10. Police would not reveal the exact address of the property, only that it was “near the railway station”.
