We need your help finding items of jewellery stolen two weeks ago from a family home in Guildford
The family returned to their home in Admirals Court, on Saturday 10 February, to find it had been broken into.
PC Matt Griffiths, who is investigating the incident said: “A number of high value items of jewellery were taken from the family, and fortunately they thought to take photographs of the items which will help us with trying to locate them.
“Please can I ask you to keep your eyes peeled for the distinctive items shown in the photographs? Have a good look at them, and if you have any information please call 101 quoting reference PR/45180015469.
“We would really like to see the jewellery returned to the family. I would advise anyone who has high-value jewellery to do what this family did, and take pictures of them against a plain background, and use a ruler to give an idea of size”
