Etwall burglary knife

One of our detectives has issued an appeal for information after a hunting knife was amongst items stolen during a burglary in Etwall. 

Between 8.20am and 5pm on Tuesday, February 27, a bungalow on Church Hill in Etwall was broken-in to. 

Amongst items stolen was a knife similar to the one pictured and money from the children’s piggy bank. 

Detectives Constable Jessica Shaw, who is investigating the burglary, said: “We are obviously concerned that such a knife could now be circulating in the community. 

“If you have been offered such a knife for sale or seen someone with one, we would urge you to make contact with us. 

“The attacked bungalow is close to Etwall Cricket Club and we would ask that if anyone saw anything suspicious between the material times that they give us a call.” 

If you have any information about this incident please contact Jessica, quoting reference number 1800045773
