Police are appealing for witnesses and information after a number of watches and jewellery were stolen during a burglary in Bath on Sunday 5th November.
Thieves forced a window at a house in Burnham Road, Bath, between 3.30pm and 6.30pm on Bonfire Night.
They then stole a safe containing keys, personal papers, cash in Euros and distinctive jewellery including:
- A rose gold Albert watch chain with faceted links in a grey case, worn as a necklace pictured;
- A marcasite necklace in a light blue case pictured;
- A silver charm bracelet pictured with charms including a bible which opens and closes, a bottle and a rocking chair;
- A silver bracelet in a chevron design in a cream and brown box with a gold flower;
- A gold charm bracelet with charms including a strawberry with red enamel, a black and white penguin, an Eiffel tower, a shamrock and clogs;
- A man’s onyx ring with a centurion’s head engraved in the stone;
- A Rolex Oyster kinetic watch with an expandable strap.
The thieves also took three WW2 medals in a brown case.
Anyone with any information which could help is asked to get in touch online, or by calling 101, quoting the reference 5217253360.
Alternatively ring the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111. They never ask your name or trace your call. You could even qualify for a reward and still remain anonymous.
Police advice is to keep high-value jewellery with a secure storage company and cash in the bank, rather than at home, following a number of incidents in which entire safes have been stolen.
Remember, if you see someone acting suspiciously around a neighbour’s property, call officers straight away. If they’re obviously breaking in, ring 999. Otherwise, call the non-emergency number 101 – police operators are on hand 24/7.
