Australian Commemorative Coins Stolen In Telford Burglary
Police are appealing for information after thieves broke into a Telford home and stole thousands of pounds worth of items including jewellery, electrical goods and five Australian commemorative coins.
The break-in happened at an address in Oval Close in St Georges and after thieves forced their way into the home by forcing a door.
They carried out a thorough search of all rooms and made off with a haul of items.
Police are now eager to trace the property and the offenders.
A Telford Police spokeswoman said: "A number of items were stolen from the property and the owners would desperately like to get some sentimental items back. These include five 1oz solid silver Australian commemorative coins, which are presented in a box, three gold wedding bands, an engagement ring with six sapphires and an eternity ring with diamonds and rubies.
"Other items stolen include a diamond faceted bangle, a gold heart gate bracelet, a ladies' Avia watch, a gentleman's Rotary watch, an opal gold ring, a number of gold necklaces, a number of bottles of wine, champagne and spirits.
"Electrical goods were also stolen including a Ventura LCD television with a DVD, a kettle, a computer and a webcam.
"We believe thieves will have tried to sell the items stolen from the property so we would really like to hear from anyone who may have been offered such property for sale in the last weeks."
The incident happened some time between Wednesday 25 April and Friday 4 May, while the owners were away from the property.
Anyone with information should contact Police Constable Nicky Gardner at Telford Police on 101. Alternatively, information can be passed anonymously via Crimestoppers on 0800 555111.
