Family heirlooms taken in house raid
4:26pm Monday 4th November 2013 in News
FAMILY heirlooms worth tens of thousands of pounds have been stolen from a home in West Bergholt.
Thieves raided the property on Mumford Road on Saturday, October 26, between 4pm and 7.15pm.
They stole tens of thousands of pounds worth of jewellery and cash after forcing their way through a rear window.
Det Con Claire Jennings said: "The victim is devastated because some of the jewellery was of great sentimental value and had been given to her by her late mother.
"She is hoping that people will come forward with information to help her get those items back so that they can be passed on to her own children.”
Any witnesses or anyone with information about jewellery being sold in suspicious circumstances should contact Det Con Jennings at Colchester CID on 101 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
