Sneak-in burglars steal jewellery, phones and camera kit

Posted on 13th September 2017

Burglars stole a diamond ring, designer watch and various electronic items after sneaking into a house while the occupants were getting ready upstairs.

The break-in happened at a house in Stanley Street, Swadlincote, between 7am and 7.45am on Friday, September 8.

After sneaking in through a back door, the offenders took an iPhone 5C, an iPad Pro, a Mulberry purse with cash and cards in it, and a black Nikon camera.

They also took a gold Raymond Weil watch and a gold diamond ring.

We’ve released a photo of the watch and the black Mulberry purse and are appealing for anyone with information to get in touch with us.
