Burglars sneaked in to an elderly couple’s Batley home and stole cash and jewellery.

Police are appealing for information about the burglary at an address on Soothill Lane, between 6am on Saturday, July 18 and 8pm on Sunday, July 19.

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 were among items stolen.

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.”

Anyone with any information is asked to contact PC James via 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
