Barking and Dagenham police appeal for help to find jewellery
DO you recognise this stolen jewellery? The ring and necklace was discovered during a routine stop and search by police.
A 17-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of handling stolen goods and has been released on police bail pending further enquiries.
Officers are now keen to hear from anyone who thinks they know the identity of the owner or has information on the theft.
Police Sergeant Brian Fry said: “This is a very distinctive piece of jewellery and I am hoping that someone in the community will recognise it.”
He recommended owners of Asian gold to buy a small safe to keep valuables and sentimental items in.
“It is also massively useful to photograph your jewellery so that if it is stolen police have an idea of what they are looking for, and if they find it, as in this case, who to return it to.”
To increase security police also recommend making sure all windows and doors are locked and secure, properly locking UPVC doors by lifting the handle and using the key when out or going to bed, and using timer switches on lamps to give homes a ‘lived-in’ look.
