Thieves broke in to an elderly couple’s home in Batley before escaping with large amount of cash and jewellery.

Police have issued an appeal for information following the sneak-in burglary which happened at a house on Soothill Lane between 6am on July 18 and 8pm on July 19,

PC Paul James, of the Kirklees Burglary Team, said: “The items stolen are of huge sentimental value to the owners and I am urging anyone who saw anything suspicious in the area during the times stated to come forward. Equally, if anyone has been invited to buy the items described, or who may have seen them for sale, I would ask they speak to police.”

Items stolen include a silver and red Pandora shoe charm, a gold ring with a garnet surrounded by opals and green stones, a gold ring with a blue sapphire and a gold necklace with a bean shaped garnet.

Anyone with information can contact PC Paul James at Kirklees District Burglary Team via 101 or Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
