DETECTIVES are trying to trace the owners of stolen antique jewellery.
The haul of jewellery was found when police raided a home in Bedworth, Warwickshire, as part of an investigation into a string of burglaries in neighbouring Coventry.
Officers discovered 12 pieces of antique jewellery, including chains, rings and a bracelet, that they believe were stolen from a house in Durham.
A 30-year-old man has been charged with burglary and remanded in custody.
Pc John Ellis, of Willenhall police station, said: “We are determined to reunite this jewellery with its rightful owner.
“This jewellery may have been a family heirloom or a wedding gift that really meant a lot to its original owner.
“We hope that the owner will contact us and explain how the items were stolen.
“As well as getting their property back, they may also help us convict those responsible for its theft.”
Anyone who might recognise the jewellery is asked to call Pc Ellis on 0345 113 5000.
