Police appeal after jewellery and war medals are stolen from Brookvale
WAR medals and precious jewellery have been stolen from a house in Runcorn.
The owners of the property have been left heartbroken as the items were of great sentimental value.
Burglars forced the ground floor window of a house in Brookvale in broad daylight.
A gold engagement ring, two gold chains, various WW2 service medals, a black i-pad, two digital cameras, photo album and a quantity of cash were taken.
DC Calvin Fletcher said: "Some of these items have great sentimental value and cannot be replaced.
“We are doing everything we can to trace the items and return them to their rightful owners. The owners are understandably heartbroken by what has happened and are desperate to get their personal belongings back.
"The war medals in particular are very distinctive.
“I am appealing to anyone who has any information regarding the whereabouts of any of the stolen items or anyone who is offered items similar to those mentioned to get in touch.
"We are also appealing to anyone who has any information in relation to any of these incidents to come forward. We would also urge anyone who has any information regarding those responsible to contact us."
Officers are currently carrying out a number of enquiries in a bid to trace those responsible and to recover the stolen items.
Anyone with any information is urged to call Cheshire Police on 101 or Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
