Investigating officer, PC Lewis Mortimer, said: “The items of stolen jewellery hold a great deal of sentimental value as they belonged to the victim’s mother, who recently passed away. I am appealing for anyone who was in the area between the stated times and saw anything suspicious to get in touch. Have you seen any unfamiliar vehicles in the area or did you notice someone hanging around the property?"
He added: “I’d also be interested to hear from anyone who may have been offered any jewellery similar to those listed for sale.”
