Reward offered for the return of sentimental stolen jewellery
A REWARD has been offered for the return of sentimental jewellery stolen during a break-in.
A criminal targeted a home in Hindley Road, Westhoughton by forcing a window open.
A unique African necklace, which had been given to the victim by her grandmother was stolen. It is described as being gold and ornate. A necklace made when the victim’s daughter was born and a watch were among the items taken.
The victim has now offered a reward for information that will lead to the safe return of the jewellery.
The burglary happened sometime between 8.30am Wednesday, September, 11 and Thursday, September 26 at 9am.
Det Sgt Lee Shaw, from Farnworth Police Station, said: “Although several items were taken, the owner is desperate to have the gold necklace returned to her. It is very sentimental to the victim as it was given to the by her Grandmother. Other items stolen were a Gold pendant that is the shape of a poodle and was made when the victim’s daughter was born, cylindrical gold earrings and gold bangles.
“We do not have a photo of the necklace but we do have a picture of a piece that is very similar. It is very unique in design and is not something you would expect to be seen on the high street.
“I would ask anyone who may have been offered this necklace or any other items under suspicious circumstances, to contact police. The owner is offering a reward that leads to the safe return of the jewellery.”
Anyone with information is asked to call police on 0161 856 5830 or call Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555111.
