Detectives in Harrogate are hunting for burglars who stole thousands of pounds worth of jewellery.

Sometime between 6.30pm and 10.45pm on Friday 29 April 2011, thieves forced a window at a property on Duchy Road, before entering the house and taking approximately £10,000 worth of valuable jewellery.

Harrogate Stollen JewelleryPolice have released images of some of the most distinctive of the stolen items, in the hope that someone may recognise them.

Among the stolen jewellery was a platinum dress ring inset with diamonds and a large emerald, which is valued at around £4000.

A 20th century rose gold, filed curb chain and pair of gold and platinum diamond inset earrings, were also taken in the raid.

Two further distinctive items are missing following the burglary; a rare 1960 Breitling Cosmonaute watch, valued at £2000 and a set of Peruvian NASCAR cufflinks.

Officers are appealing for anyone with information about the burglary or the whereabouts of the stolen jewellery to come forward.

Detective Constable Pete Allison, of Harrogate CID, said: “I am appealing for anyone who can help us trace the items stolen to get in touch with information.

“Some of the items are very valuable and distinctive and you may recognise them if you have been offered them for sale.

“This is obviously a very upsetting time for the victims and I urge anyone with information that can help the police reunite them with their property and bring the offenders to justice to come forward.”

Anyone with any information that can help the police with their enquiries is urged to contact DC Pete Allison, of Harrogate CID, on 0845 60 60 24 7, quoting reference number 12110069517.
