POLICE have re-released photos of stolen jewellery taken in two separate burglaries from homes in the Marlborough area, and asking could your Christmas presents be stolen goods?

They hope they may be recognised by someone who received them as gifts.

The break-ins are believed to have happened between August 30 and September 1 at an address on the High Street, Burbage, and a house in East Grafton.

Among the stolen items were a high value engagement ring described as a platinum band with a solitaire diamond, a Lapponian 18 carat gold bracelet, a George Gensell Coppell gold watch, and a De beers prestige diamond ring.

PC Jayne Wilby, investigating the incidents, said: "We are releasing the pictures again as someone may have been given one or a number of these items for Christmas.

"Some have a lot of sentimental value and the owners are understandably upset and distressed at their loss. They are desperate to have them returned.

"I'd like to appeal to anyone who may have information regarding these items; if you received any of these as gifts please contact me immediately."

Anyone with information should call PC Jane Wilby on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
