Appeal for information – Theft of wedding jewellery – St Helens


Merseyside Police can confirm a report was received on Monday, 8 June that a bag containing jewellery was stolen from a restaurant in St Helens.

At about 2pm a report was received that a bag containing jewellery had been taken by an unknown individual having been left unattended in the toilets of McDonald’s Restaurant on Church Street.

Enquiries have been made into the matter.

Inspector David Brennan , said “This bride-to-be has had two precious pieces of jewellery, her engagement and wedding rings, taken which are understandably of great sentimental value.

“Unfortunately the rings, which were inside a H. Samuel’s bag, were left inside a toilet in the McDonald’s restaurant in the town centre at around 2pm on Monday.

“Someone has found the bag and, instead of handing it in to staff or advising the police of the find, decided to keep it. At the time the restaurant was very busy and I would urge the person who found the bag or anyone who knows where the items are to do the right thing and report the find to the police or hand the items in to a police station.

“I ask members of the public to be on the lookout in case they are offered such items for sale, on the street or in a pawnbrokers.

” I would urge anyone who has any information that can help us to reunite the victim with her property to contact the police.”

Anyone with information is asked to contact Merseyside Police on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
