Appeal after jewellery stolen during a burglary in Maghull March 4th, 2014 admin Latest News Shares Comments Merseyside Police has released pictures of distinctive jewellery stolen during a burglary in Maghull on Wednesday, 26 February. Officers were called to Brook Road at around 4.10pm following a report that a house had been broken into at sometime since 11am that morning. It’s believed the offenders forced their way into the property and searched the rooms before escaping with a substantial amount of jewellery and some cash. The property has been forensically examined and CCTV opportunities from the area are being explored. An investigation to establish the full circumstances surrounding the incident is underway. Detective Inspector Cheryl Rhodes, Sefton CID, said: “Any burglary is a frightening experience which often leaves victims feeling violated. “In this case, the householders are particularly upset as the jewellery which has been taken has a great deal of sentimental value. “The pictures we have released show some of the stolen items including a Chopard watch surrounded by diamonds, a ring set with a pink tourmaline stone and diamonds and another ring set with diamonds and a green stone. “These pieces, and the other ones shown, mean a lot to the victims and they are obviously desperate for their safe return. “They are very distinctive and I’d appeal to anyone who may have been offered any of the items for sale, or know where they are, to get in touch with us. “A black BMW is also thought to have been seen in the area around the time the burglary happened and I’d urge people who saw anything suspicious last Wednesday, or who have any other information about the incident, to give us a call.” People can speak to officers from Sefton CID on 0151 777 3833 or via the police non-emergency 101 number.
