Police detectives are appealing for information from members of the public about a statue, similar to that shown in this image, which was stolen in an aggravated burglary in Ockham.

The bronze copy of Degas’ Little Dancer is described as being about one metre tall and is believed to be valued at several thousands of pounds. It was stolen in an offence at a property in Ockham on October 14, 2012.

Detective Inspector Jake Nuttall investigating the offence said: “This is a distinctive piece and I am sure anyone who may have has seen it for sale or been offered it in unusual circumstances would remember the item. I would urge people to come forward and provide any information they have which may relate to the disappearance of this artefact.”

Surrey Police is investigating the aggravated burglary and a linked robbery at a jewellery store in Cobham. The 47-year-old victim was at a house when a group of men forced their way into the address. The householder was assaulted and the offenders then searched the property and stole numerous items.
