A break in to a St Albans home on Wednesday (29) saw several items of sentimental jewellery stolen.

A number of gold and silver pieces, including a gold wedding ring and a gold locket engraved ‘DB 1968’ on the back were stolen.

The thieves broke in between 11.05am and 8.25pm through the rear after smashing the glass in the patio door to get in to the Hatfield Road property.

Other items stolen included: a thrupenny brooch, a gold necklace with gold heart inside and hoop pendant, a silver Shetland Viking pendant, gold hoop earrings with hearts, silver drop earrings with a butterfly on, and gold earrings with dark green gem stones.

Dec Con Chris Fisher, who is investigating the incident, said: “These items are of great sentimental value to the victim and I am keen to trace those responsible for taking it as soon as possible.

You may also want to watch:

“I would appeal to anyone who was in the area at the time and saw anything suspicious to contact me. I would also like to hear from people who may have been offered any of these items for sale in suspicious circumstances.”

Anyone with information should contact DC Fisher on the non-emergency number 101, or call anonymously on 0800 555 111.
