Hertfordshire Police try to trace items stolen over the last two years
Detectives have found jewellery, watches and bags stolen in burglaries around Hertfordshire.
Hertfordshire Police is now trying to trace the owners of the items – some of which seem to be sentimental heirlooms.
One necklace is engraved with the name Eva and a locket has a handwritten inscription reading: ‘To Jean with love, Fiona, Aileen and Ron.’
Also recovered was a silver elephant on a 'First Bank' stand and a gold watch.
The items have been seized in London over the past two and a half years, but strong evidence suggests they were taken from homes in Hertfordshire.
DS Lesley Shearer, who is heading up the enquiry, known as Operation Gemini, said: “Some of the items are clearly of monetary value and of course many of them will be of sentimental value.
“We know through from our inquiries so far that it is highly likely that many of the items were taken in burglaries in Hertfordshire.
“It is my aim to return as many items of property as possible to their rightful owners.”
