DC Allison Fraser of Fratton CID said: “This is a high value burglary where a lot of items have been stolen. Unusually, clothing has been taken - all of which was designer andsome of which is especially distinctive, particularly the two snow jackets.
“Particularly during the festive season when people are preparing for Christmas, please ensure you are not buying stolen goods. Burglars and thieves rely on people to buy theitems they steal, which is how they make their money. By refusing to buy their stolen ware and by reporting them to the police of Crimestoppers, you can help us catch the people responsible and deny them the option of continuing to commit crime. If no-onebought stolen goods, burglaries and thefts would be greatly reduced.
“Do you know where these items are now? Have you been offered them for sale? Have you noticed a friend or family member wearing any of the distinctive clothing?
“I appeal to the public to ensure they only buy from reputable, legitimate sources. If something seems too cheap, it may well be stolen. Don't be caught in possession of stolen goods - a good deal could be a bad deal.”
Anyone with information should contact DC Fraser on 101. Mini-Com users can call the police on 01962 875000. Information can be given anonymously by calling the Crimestoppers charity on 0800 555 111.
