Officers investigating a burglary in Christchurch are issuing images of the stolen items and are asking for witnesses to come forward. 

In the early hours of Sunday 6 March 2022 a burglary occurred at an address in Thursby Road in the Highcliffe area.

Items of gold jewellery were stolen, including a Christmas tree brooch, filigree earrings, a gate bracelet, engagement ring and wedding ring.

Police Constable Greg Johnson, of Dorset Police, said: “This burglary has had a significant impact on the victim as a number of sentimental items were taken, including jewellery that belonged to his elderly mother. 

“I am appealing to anyone who was in the area of Thursby Road between the evening of Saturday 5 March and the early hours of Sunday 6 March 2022 and saw or witnessed any suspicious behaviour to please come forward.

“I am issuing images of some of the stolen jewellery in the hope that someone may recognise them and know where they are or who was responsible for this offence. These items are more than just pieces of jewellery to the victim, and I would urge anyone who has seen them offered for sale locally to please contact Dorset Police.”
