Thames Valley Police is appealing for witnesses after burglars broke into a house in Broughton last Friday.

Between 12pm and 3.50pm, offenders gained entry by forcing open a kitchen window of a house in Ulverston Crescent.

Once inside they went upstairs and made an untidy search of all three bedrooms. The offenders then went back downstairs and left by unlocking the kitchen door from the inside.

Electronic items stolen include an Xbox games console, a Sony Vaio laptop, a Packard Bell laptop and an Apple Macbook Air laptop.

Jewellery stolen included an 18ins gold belcher chain with ruby and diamond crucifix; a necklace with amethyst and diamond pendant and matching earrings; a 9ct gold signet ring; a silver charm bracelet with charms including best friend, heart, 40 and a star; a gold solitaire ring; a silver ring with welsh engraving on the outside as follows ‘un modrwy i ddangos ein cariad un modrwy i’n clynu’; and a diamond trilogy ring with three vertical diamonds.

The offenders also stole a spare set of car keys but not the vehicle itself.

Police are appealing for anybody who has information about this incident or knowledge of the stolen items to come forward. The victim is particularly keen to recover their distinctive jewellery, which has strong sentimental value to the victim.

Anyone with information should call the Thames Valley Police 24-hour non-emergency single number 101 and ask to speak to Det Con Samantha Reynolds.
