Unique rings stolen during house burglary in Stourport
UNIQUE rings were among a number of items of jewellery stolen from a Worcestershire home.
The items stolen from the property in the Ribbesford Drive area of Stourport between 7.30am and 6pm on Wednesday, January 23 included a ring with a single square diamond and a white gold cross over band worth £2,000 and a white gold wedding band with a small band of diamonds around the main band worth £500.
Other items included a Pandora necklace and earrings set worth £150, an Accurist ladies watch worth £150, a yellow gold diamond and sapphire ring, assorted fashion jewellery and an iPad with a light blue Apple branded case worth £350.
The offenders entered the house through secure French doors, causing £200 damage, after going over a fence into the rear garden.
PC Adrian Bartlett of West Mercia Police said: "The burglary has caused considerable distress to the victims, particularly as the rings were specially made and therefore unique."
Residents have been reminded to buy dawn to dusk light sensor bulbs or use timers to turn on lamps if they are going to be out all day during the winter months to make it look as if the property is occupied.
Anyone with information should call PC Bartlett on the non-emergency number 101, quoting incident 454-s-230113, or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
