Police are trying to reunite owner with stolen items


Police are trying to find a woman’s beloved jewellery that was stolen from her house in Droylsden.

At around 3.50pm on Saturday 17 February 2018, police were called to reports of a burglary on Dunkirk Street.

A man had broken into the house by smashing a window, however he became trapped in the locked utility and had to break another window to get in.

Once inside, he searched through the house and stole a number of items of jewellery including a charm bracelet, a necklace and some earrings.

At this point, the owner returned and saw the offender fleeing from her house towards Maple Avenue.

Police have released images of the stolen jewellery in the hope of reuniting her with her beloved items.

Police Community Support Officer Louis Baistow of GMP’s Tameside borough, said: “This man has gone into a home and taken a lot of jewellery that is valuable, not just financially but also emotionally.

“If you see the jewellery for sale online, or know where it is, please get in touch with police as soon as you can.

“We’re also keen to hear from anyone who may have seen the man as he fled from Dunkirk Street towards Maple Avenue that Saturday afternoon.”

Anyone with information should contact police on or 101 quoting incident number 1419 of 17/02/18. Reports can also be made anonymously through the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
