Police are appealing for the public’s help after jewellery and watches were stolen from a house in St Helens.
The victims returned to their home in Bexhill Gardens at around 5.10pm on Thursday, May 7, to discover several unique items of jewellery and three watches had been taken.
An investigation into the circumstances surrounding the incident is continuing.
Among the jewellery taken were two gold Links of London bracelets, including an 18 carat gold Links of London Sweetie bracelet, as well as other items of jewellery made with Chinese gold. Three watches have been stolen: a Cartier Pasha Seatimer men’s watch with a black rubber strap, a Cartier Santos Ladies stainless steel watch and a men’s Tempest Viking diver’s watch.
DC Jeff Huxley, said: “This collection of jewellery is of huge sentimental value to the victims and includes rare and distinctive items that would be almost impossible to replace.
“I’d like to appeal to the consciences of the offenders and put themselves in the victims’ position. I ask them to do the right thing and find a way to get the stolen items back to their rightful owner.
“We would appeal to anyone who might have witnessed anyone acting suspiciously on or around Bexhill Gardens between 4.10-5.10pm on Thursday, 7 May to contact us on 0151 777 6013. I’d also ask members of the public to be on the lookout in case they are, or have been, offered any of these items as a gift or for sale either on the street, in pawnbrokers or in pubs or have seen the items for sale on the internet.”
