CASH and jewellery were stolen during a break in at a Chippenham house on Monday.

Burglars broke the lock on the back door of the home on Queen's Crescent.

The thieves then stole the cash and jewellery before making off with the items in a blue pillowcase (pictured).

The pillowcase was found on Tuesday in Frogwell Park, containing half of the stolen items.

PC Chloe Jenkins said: “It is extremely likely that the suspect would have walked the half a mile from Queens Crescent to Frogwell Park carrying this pillow case which may have seemed unusual to anyone in the area. If you recall seeing someone in the area carrying this pillowcase, please get in touch as you could be able to help us."
