Family devastated after break-in at their home

Thieves broke into a house in St Martin yesterday, leaving a family devastated after getting away with a large haul of family jewellery.

The break-in, at a property on La Rue des Alleurs, happened sometime between 11am and 1.15pm when thieves used a ladder found on the premises, which overlooks Rozel, to smash a rear upstairs window.

A large quantity of gold and gem rings, bracelets, neck chains and watches, brooches and Krugerrands were stolen, together with a set of distinctive Georgian silver cutlery inscribed with the letter ˜M'.

Detective Sgt Craig Jackson, who is dealing with the inquiry, is appealing to anyone who may have been in or around the area of St Martin yesterday and may have seen anything suspicious, to contact him.

"This is a significant haul of jewellery and valuables, much of which has sentimental value and is irreplaceable, said Det Sgt Jackson. "The family is devastated, and I would appeal to people who may have been in the St Martin's area around the relevant time yesterday to think back, in case they may have some information that could help our inquiries.

"We are also appealing to anyone who may be approached about any suspicious items being offered for sale or pawn, to contact States of Jersey Police as soon as possible.

Anyone with any information can contact Det Sgt Jackson on 01534 6122200, or via the confidential Crimestoppers Hotline on 0800 555 111.
