Police have launched an appeal after several items were stolen from a house in Harpenden on Monday evening.

A burglar is thought to have used a crow bar to force entry into the Ambrose Lane property between 6.45pm and 7.15pm.

They took various pieces of jewellery including a ruby ring, silver oval cufflinks believed to be Gieves and Hawkes with a naval crown on the faces, and a pair of silver antique candlesticks.

Det Con Paul Cullinan from St Albans Local Crime Unit said: “I am appealing to anyone who may have been in the area, specifically in Ambrose Lane and Hollybush Lane that evening, and noticed any unusual activity.

“I am particularly keen to hear from anyone who saw a vehicle they didn’t recognise or which seemed out of place.

“The ring pictured holds sentimental value to its owner, who is keen for its return. If you have been offered this ring for sale or know of its whereabouts I would urge you to contact to me on the non-emergency number.”

Anyone with information should contact Herts police on the non-emergency number 101, or alternatively call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
