Officers are appealing for information and witnesses following a burglary in Watford, including a man who is believed to have discovered the burglary.
Between 4pm on Wednesday, March 31 and 10.30am on Saturday, April 3, offender(s) gained access to a property in Sheepcot Lane in Watford.
They carried out a messy search before stealing a large quantity of family gold, including a bespoke gold and cut diamond jewellery set.
Detective Constable Debbie West, who is investigating, said: “Extensive enquiries have been carried out since this incident was reported and we were hoping to find some photos of the stolen jewellery to share. Unfortunately, this has not been possible but I’m still keen to hear from anyone who saw what happened or anyone with information that might help.
“Perhaps you saw suspicious activity in the area? Or maybe you think you’ve been offered the jewellery for sale?
“I am particularly keen to hear from a man who we believe discovered the burglary. As the property was unoccupied at the time, he alerted the neighbours and then drove off in a Porsche Cayenne. If this was you, please get in touch as you could have vital information.”
Anyone who can help should call the non-emergency number 101 or email firstname.lastname@example.org quoting crime reference 41/23977/21.
