Thieves forced their way into a house in the Bellfields area of Guildford on Tuesday (April 22) and made off with a quantity of jewellery and camera equipment.

The burglary happened in Yew Tree Drive sometime between 9.30am and 3.15pm when offenders went to the back of the property and smashed a window to gain entry.

The intruders made off with a number of rings, watches and photographic equipment including a camera, camera lens and bag. In total the items stolen are valued at around £1,000.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Surrey Police on 101 quoting reference 45140032115.

The daytime offence happened on Saturday, April 19, when the house on the main road through the village was targeted. Offenders entered the property sometime between 10am and 1.40pm and made off with a number of distinctive coinage and jewellery, including commemorative Canadian silver dollar coins, a tuppeny bit coin from 1797 engraved with the letters JD and a Victorian diamond ring.

Detective Constable Chris Woolford investigating said: “The audacity of these offenders is unbelievable – to burgle a house on the main A247 in  daylight on a bank holiday weekend demonstrates a brazen offence. I would urge anyone who may have been in the vicinity, driving or walking along the road or who has been offered or seen the stolen items for sale to contact me urgently.

“It is imperative that all residents remain vigilant about home security and ensure that windows and doors are securely locked. If you are in need of crime prevention advice please contact your Safer Neighbourhood Team on 101 and speak to the Crime Reduction Advisor.”
