Detectives are appealing for information following a burglary in East Langton where valuable jewellery was stolen.

The homeowner returned home to disturb a man in the grounds of the property. He had broken in through a first floor window and made off at speed in a pale silvery colour saloon style car. The registration mark began with the letter R.

He is described as white, in his twenties with short brown hair. He was wearing a light coloured t-shirt and baggy style trousers.

Stolen from the property was a safe containing an amount of valuable jewellery worth in the region of between £50,000 and £100,000. Also stolen was a quantity of cash.

Detective Constable Melanie Fisher, the investigating officer, said: “The victims have been left upset at the loss of their family jewellery and are keen to do everything possible to ensure the return of their property.

Images of the jewellery have been released in the hope in tracing it. We would urge jewellers and pawn brokers to have a look at the images and contact us if they have been approached by someone selling similar items or even visited by someone asking for them to value the items.

A reward of £7500 is now being offered to anyone helping with the recovery of the stolen items.
