Police appeal after jewellery taken in Swansea burglary

Police in Swansea are asking for information after a sizeable gold jewellery collection was taken in a morning burglary on Friday 26th April.

It is thought that a number of the pieces taken had origins abroad and, as well as being rare and expensive, had a significant sentimental value to the owner.

Among the pieces taken was a recognisable elephant pendant on a chain of gold and a matching set of earrings. There was also a gold heart pendant, a Greek charm bracelet and a butterfly pendant.

Police are encouraging anyone who may have information, particularly those in the St Helens area of the city where the incident happened, to get in contact. Officers are also asking those in the jewellery and gold trades to look out for the distinctive items.

Paul Howles, Detective Constable of Swansea Central CID, spoke about the incident:

“A substantial amount of jewellery was stolen, many of the items stolen were purchased abroad and will very almost impossible to replace. This burglary has happened in broad day light on a busy street, where there are a large amount [sic] of private dwellings.

“I am appealing to the neighbours or anyone else who was in the vicinity at the relevant time and saw any suspicious persons or vehicles to come forward.”

Police in the area have, in the past, encouraged homeowners to ensure their properties are secure. Many choose to do this with the help of equipment such as lockable security gates and roller garage doors.
