Appeal for witnesses following series of burglaries in Bramshaw and Sherfield English
Main article content
We are appealing for witnesses following a series of burglaries in Bramshaw and Sherfield English on Tuesday, 8 June.
Between 12.50pm and 6pm, unknown individuals broke into an address in Brook Hill, Bramshaw, and stole a large quantity of jewellery.
Items stolen included several gold rings, silver bracelets and necklaces, gold and silver cuff links and dress watches.
One of the watches was an Omega slim dress watch, engraved with ‘Warings Contractors, 25 years service’ on it.
They also stole a cap badge with a deer in the middle and ‘SHERWOOD FORRESTERS’ printed on it.
The second burglary in Graemar Lane, Sherfield English, happened between 1.50pm and 2.20pm while the occupants were out.
Unknown individuals disabled an alarm and threw a rock through a rear door window to gain entry.
They then searched the bedrooms taking jewellery which included two sets of diamond earrings, two watches and a jewellery box which contained the baby teeth of the homeowners’ child.
Windows were broken to gain entry in both incidents.
Officers are keen to speak to an individual using a KTM Duke motorbike painted orange and black and wearing a white helmet with red googles.
Similarly, a red motorbike was seen in Sherfield English on the day of the burglary and the owner could help police with their enquiries.
PC Noora Abbasi, who is leading the investigation, said: “We want to know if anyone has seen anything suspicious in these areas.
“Have any vehicles appeared out of the ordinary? Do you have CCTV footage of the incidents?
“We are also releasing two images of jewellery stolen in the Bramshaw burglary.
“If you have seen them being sold, or think you may have bought them, we want to hear from you.”
Call us on 101, quoting 44210224057 for the Bramshaw burglary and 44210223701 for the Sherfield English burglary.
