Thieves have stolen £5000 worth of property from a house in Weymouth, including an 18ct gold ring.

The incident, in which offenders forced their way into an address in the Everest Road area and stole cash and items, happened some time between midday and 9pm on Thursday, 18 November 2010.

Police Constable Nick Gravenor, of Weymouth police, said:

 “Among the stolen items was a dark grey metal safe and various items of jewellery that belonged to the victim’s mother – these are of great sentimental value.

“One particular item is a lady’s 18ct gold ring with sapphire and diamonds.

“Naturally, the victim is distraught at the loss of these valuable items and is desperate for the stolen items to be recovered.

“I am appealing for anyone who witnessed any suspicious or unusual activity in this area last Thursday to contact me as soon as possible.

“I would also appeal to those responsible to do the right thing and return the jewellery, in particular the ring, as it is completely irreplaceable and means a great deal to the victim.”
