Police ask second hand shops and jewellers to be vigilant after jewellery stolen from Bridgwater home

Avon and Somerset Police are appealing for the public’s help to find jewellery taken in a house burglary in the Bridgwater area with a high sentimental value.

Second-hand shops and jewellers are also being asked to be vigilant.

A range of jewellery was taken after entry was forced into the property in Othery on the evening of June 24, including an engagement ring and a 1930s watch which belonged to the father of the victim, both of which have sentimental value.

A man’s 18ct gold bracelet, 9ct gold chain, two pairs of gold cuff links, a pair of silver cuff links and the watch were taken, along with a number of women’s necklaces and bracelets in (in gold, rose gold and white gold, some with precious stones), bracelets, rings (gold, white gold, platinum with precious stones), plus earrings (gold with precious stones).

Police are urging members of the public to contact them if offered any of the above at a knockdown price.

Police are also urging owners of second-hand shops and jewellers to be vigilant and contact them if anyone offers items which could match that taken in the burglary.

Anyone able to help is asked to contact Somerset Investigations on the force number 101, quoting reference 67418/15.
