Reward for return of stolen African jewellery
A REWARD has been offered for the return of a unique African necklace stolen during a break-in.
A thief targeted a home in Hindley Road, Westhoughton, forcing a window open.
The gold, ornate necklace, which had been given to the victim by her grandmother was stolen.
Another necklace, made when the victim’s daughter was born, and a watch were among other items taken.
The victim has now offered a reward for information that will lead to the safe return of the jewellery, which has sentimental value.
The burglary happened between 8.30am Wednesday, September 11, and 9am on Thursday, September 26.
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 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.
