10:13am 18th January 2012
North Yorkshire Police are appealing for information following a burglary in Tollerton.
It occurred between 5.30pm on Saturday 14 January and 7.30pm on Sunday 15 January 2012, from a house on Main Street. The thieves used ladders from the property to gain access to a first floor window.
The burglars stole a quantity of jewellery including gold rings, two charm bracelets with various charms, a silver medal, a nurse’s watch, a gold Rotary wristwatch, with a crocodile effect strap, and an imitation pearl necklace. The value of the items is several thousand pounds.
PC Lee Anderson, of Easingwold Safer Neighbourhood Team, said:
“I would like to remind homeowners not to leave ladders lying around. Ideally they should be locked in a secured shed or outbuilding. However, if this is not possible, ladders should be firmly fixed to a something solid so that criminals cannot misuse them.
“I am appealing to anyone who can help with the recovery of the stolen jewellery to contact the police or Crimestoppers straight away.”
Anyone who can help the police with their enquiries is asked to contact DC Richard Wigglesworth on 101. Press option 2 and ask for Richard Wigglesworth.
Or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 quoting reference number 12120007876.
