The victims of a recent burglary have been left upset after jewellery of sentimental value was stolen from their home.

Detective Constable Dean Trollope from St Albans Local Crime Unit, investigating, said that between 3.20-3.50pm on Thursday October 16 burglars climbed into the rear garden of a home in Park Street Lane, Park Street.

The thieves allegedly forced open a window to break into the home while the residents were out.

Among the items stolen were a man’s Omega watch with a round ivory face, a gold watch with a thin gold-plated chain-link strap and two rings.

Herts Police have released a photo of one of the rings, which is platinum with a blue tanzanite stone inset on one side and small diamonds on the other.

Det Con Trollope said: “The victims of this burglary have been left very upset by the theft of their property as it holds sentimental value to them.

“I would ask anyone who is offered the items for sale or knows of their whereabouts to contact me straight away.

“As this happened during the day I would also like to hear from anyone who may have been in the area at the time of the incident. Do you remember seeing something that seemed unusual, out of place or suspicious?

“Any detail you can provide, however seemingly insignificant, may assist me greatly.”

Det Con Trollope can be contacted on the police non-emergency number 101, or you can call Crimestoppers, the independent charity, anonymously on 0800 555 111.
