Theft of jewellery - Foxhole St Austell

Alert message sent 01/10/2019 11:06:00

Information sent on behalf of Devon and Cornwall Police


Appeal to locate jewellery
Police are appealing for information to locate sentimental jewellery stolen from the home of a vulnerable 88-year-old lady while she was in hospital between April and June 2019.
PC Stephanie Dunsford said: “The stolen jewellery consists of the woman’s engagement and eternity rings which she has had for 69 years. This has left her devastated, as she approaches her 70th wedding anniversary with her 93-year-old husband.
“One ring is distinctive in that it is a large circular cluster of small diamonds set on a thicker gold ladies’ wedding band. This is thicker than a normal engagement ring would be.
“The other ring is a gold band with a row of five large diamonds in a claw setting. A necklace pendant was also stolen. This is gold, in the shape of a cross with a green/blue peridot stone set above the centre of the cross. Unfortunately we do not have any photographs of the stolen jewellery.
“This crime has had a long lasting effect on this victim.”
A 26-year-old woman from St Austell was arrested on suspicion of theft and was released under investigation pending further enquiries.
If anyone has this jewellery in their possession, it can be handed in to police anonymously to St Austell Police Station marked for the attention of PC 7233 Dunsford.
Anyone with information is urged to call police on 101, or email 101@dc.police.uk, quoting crime reference number CR/061829/19.
Information can also be passed anonymously to Crimestoppers via 0800 555111 or at www.crimestoppers-uk.org
