Items from Burpham Burglary

Shoppers and local residents are also asked to be alert to items which they may see for sale following a burglary at a house in the Burpham area.

Officers are urging people to contact them if they have any information relating to a stolen Napoleon style wooden clock or a Staffordshire china figurine of Victoria and Albert.

The items were stolen in a break-in at a property in the New Inn Lane area sometime between 9am on Monday, 26 August and 6.30pm on Friday, 30 August. Thieves forced entry into the detached house via an aluminium patio door at the back of the house.

The offenders made off with the ornamental items and jewellery, including pearl and diamond necklaces, a watch and silver bracelet, which were in total valued at more than £1,000. There was £50 worth of damage caused to the doors.

Detective Constable Mike Taylor investigating said: “The victims here are an elderly couple who were devastated to return home and find that it had been broken into. The items taken were of sentimental value and I am hoping someone may have seen these for sale, maybe on-line, in a local outlet or even at a car boot sale.

“If you do recognise them or saw anyone acting suspiciously in the New Inn Lane area at around the time of the offence please call me with details.

“Crimes like this can cause untold misery with victims not only losing treasured belongings, but for some they are left with the longer term trauma of feeling unsafe in their own homes. Surrey Police is determined to bring those offenders involved in such criminal activity to justice to ensure our neighbourhoods remain safe for residents.”
