JEWELLERY worth more than £2,000 and a sum of cash were stolen from a house in Bridlington on Wednesday, July 4.
Thieves forced their way in to a house on Mill Lane in the town, between 1.30pm and 4.25pm on Wednesday, and searched the address before making off with the items.
The stolen jewellery included an 18 ct yellow gold ring with an oval shaped ‘fire opal’ surrounded by small diamonds, valued at £800, a very old 18 ct yellow gold ring with three diamonds of equal size, in an aged brown box with gold on it, valued at £600 to £750.
A 9ct yellow gold ring with a flower shaped diamond cluster, as well as a 9ct yellow gold wide band with leaf patterns on and sapphire cluster with small diamond in centre, both valued at £250 each, were also taken.
The rings have great sentimental value to their owner.
A white man was seen acting suspiciously in the area at the time and has been described as in his mid 30s, with a medium build and short, brown hair. He was wearing a navy blue padded jacket and jeans.
Anyone with information about the incident, the suspect, or the whereabouts of the stolen jewellery is urged to contact police in Bridlington on the non emergency number 101 referring to log 502 of July 4 or ring Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
