Residents with Asian gold are advised to make sure it is stored in a safe place after a St Albans property was ransacked last week.
The burglary took place in Waverly Road between 5.20pm and 9.10pm on Tuesday, March 19.
One or more burglars forced entry through a kitchen door and ransacked the property before stealing jewellery and other items.
Det Con Spencer Dicks said: “This jewellery had sentimental value to the victim. Fortunately they had kept the majority of their valuables in a safety deposit box, and this prevented a greater loss.
“It is a timely reminder to make sure you keep your jewellery out of sight. Valuable jewellery could be stored at banks or in less obvious places in your home. It’s also a good idea to take photos of your valuables.
