Police hunt burglars who stole silverware and jewellery from Broad Hinton home
10:48am Tuesday 26th June 2012 in News
Wiltshire Police are appealing for witnesses and information after burglars took valuable silverware and jewellery from a house in Broad Hinton.
Items stolen in the raid, which happened sometime between about 5.45pm and 10.35pm on Friday, June 8, included a large silver tureen and ladle, candlesticks, an antique silver cruet set, two silver tankards, one bearing the initials R&W, an antique garnet necklace on a gold chain, a gold rifle tie pin and a three stringed pearl necklace.
Most of the items are old and are of huge sentimental value to the owner.
PC Sophia Best from the Priority Crime Team in Swindon said: "I am keen to speak to anyone who was in the area at the time and who may have seen a vehicle or a person, or people, acting suspiciously.
"I am also keen to speak to anyone who has been offered any of the silverware or jewellery. You can be assured that any information I receive will be treated in the strictest of confidence."
Anyone with information should call PC Best at Gablecross Police Station on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
