A number of rare gold coins have been stolen during a burglary in Ramsgate
Detectives say the burglaries were reported to have taken place at a residential property in Hardres Street between 11am on Thursday 19 July and 9am on Wednesday 25 July 2018.
Watches, electrical items and collectable Krugerrand gold coins were among the items stolen during both breaks, which were reported to Kent Police.
Investigating officer DC Leah Roberts said: 'Following a number of enquiries we have been able to recover some of the items stolen but not the coins and they are of great sentimental value.
'We would ask people in the area to remain vigilant and call us if they're offered the coins to buy, or if they have any information about the burglaries.'
Anyone who saw anything suspicious or has information that could assist with the investigation is asked to call 01843 222289 quoting reference ZY/42609/18 as soon as possible.
On Sunday 29 July 2018, Martin Ward, 39, of Newcastle Hill in Ramsgate was charged with burglary following these incidents.
He was also charged with the possession of cocaine, cannabis and a knuckleduster in Ramsgate on 28 July.
Mr Ward has been released on bail to appear at Margate Magistrates' Court on 30 August 2018.
A 41-year-old woman from Ramsgate was also arrested on suspicion of burglary and has been released on police bail until 17 August.
