Witness appeal after two burglaries in same street

Posted on 20th February 2017

We’re appealing for information after burglaries at two houses in the same Borrowash road within the space of a week.

The homes, in Station Road, were targeted last month and we don’t believe that the two burglaries are linked.

The first took place between January 17 and 19, after the offenders smashed a window to get inside.

They stole items including a Wedgwood pendant.

A large haul of jewellery was stolen from a second house in the road, which was burgled between 1pm and 7pm on January 29.

Items taken included a gold engagement ring with three diamonds, a gold ring mounted with 25 small diamonds, a 22in gold necklace, a gold necklace with a cat charm with ruby eyes and a sapphire body, and a chain with a gold version of the mascot formerly used by Robertson’s jams and marmalades. The mascot itself has two sapphire eyes, three diamonds for a nose, and three sapphires on its bow tie.

We want to hear from anyone who recognises the descriptions of the jewellery or might have been offered them for sale since the break-in.

PC Jen Casey is investigating both burglaries and wants anyone who might be able to help to get in touch as soon as possible.

Witnesses or anyone with information should call her on 101, quoting reference 17000026468.
