Police are appealing for information after jewellery and silverware was stolen from a home in Werrington last week.

The home in Lincoln Road was broken into between 9am on Wednesday (June 3) and 6.45am on Thursday (June 4).

Offenders entered the rear garden and forced a wooden door, jemmying the door frame and forcing the lock, to gain entry to the garage.

They then smashed through a glass panel of an inner door to gain access to the kitchen and, once inside, conducted an untidy search of most rooms, focussing on the bedroom and stolen jewellery and antiques.

Stolen items include a Cartier wrist watch, a long pearl necklace, a dark green jewellery case, a small blue jewellery case, an analogue Louis Vuitton wrist watch, a gold ring with a garnet stone, diamond chips from a ring, a 1950s antique stamp collection book, antique Chinese coins, 1920s Peterborough Cycling Club medals, two silver penknives in leather cases and silver pill boxes.

Detective Constable Leigh Mann said: “A lot of valuable items have been stolen from this home, along with a number of sentimental ones.

“I would urge anyone who saw anything suspicious around the time of the incident, or anyone who has been offered these items for sale, to contact police.”

Anyone with information should contact the Peterborough burglary team on 101 or Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
