Police appeal over jewellery snatch

POLICE are appealing for witnesses after jewellery was stolen from a property in Heckmondwike.

Suspects forced entry into the house on New North Road between 3.30pm and 9pm on Saturday, August 20.

They got in through a window and stole several pieces of jewellery, including two silver wedding rings, which had high sentimental value to the victim.

A lady’s ring had distinctive octagonal edges.

Other items stolen included a Sandoz Caractere Collection man’s watch with black titanium strap and £80 in cash.

The items were carried from the property in pillowcases from the victim’s bed.

PC Nicole Rubio-Senior, of Kirklees CID, said: “This incident was extremely distressing for the victim and we are hoping by appealing to the public we will be able to reunite these items with their rightful owner.

“I would like to ask anyone who witnessed anything suspicious in the area or has been offered any items for sale matching the above descriptions to contact the police.”

Anybody with information can contact Kirklees CID via 101, quoting 13160359435, or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
