Hertfordshire Constabulary uses Facebook to reunite recovered jewellery with owners
Police are using Facebook to track down the owners of thousands of pieces of recovered jewellery.
Indian gold and silver necklaces, watches, rings and bracelets, which could come from households across Hertfordshire, were seized last year from a van in Hemel Hempstead.
Two men, Michael Christopher Murphy, 24, from no fixed abode and John Keenan, 30, from The Larches in Watford were found guilty of the thefts on Friday.
Murphy was sentenced to 15 months at Harrow Crown Court and Keenan will be sentenced on September 27.
Hertfordshire Constabulary is trying one final time to reunite the stolen items with the people they were stolen from.
Detective Constable Georgina Fenge said: “We would love to be able to reunite these items with their rightful owners and would encourage people who have been the victims of a burglary to take a look at the images and contact us if they believe they can identify anything.”
The items can be viewed on the Hertfordshire Constabulary Facebook page under Operation Dyad.
Anyone who believes any of the stolen property belongs to them can contact DC Fenge via the Hertfordshire Police non-emergency number 101.
