£10,000 of gold jewellery stolen in Brighton burglary

More than £10,000 worth of gold jewellery was stolen in a burglary in Brighton.

Between 6pm on Tuesday, March 18 and 11am on Wednesday, March 19 an intruder forced open a window of a home in Rushlake Road and searched the house.

When the 63-year-old owner returned home he found his suitcase of distinctive Asian gold jewellery, much of which had belonged to his late wife, had been stolen.

Among the items that were taken were gold bracelets, rings, necklaces and earrings.

Detective Constable Scott Moore said: "Whoever broke in searched the house thoroughly before leaving with the large quantity of gold jewellery.

"High value electrical items such as laptops and TVs were left behind which would suggest the thief was only looking for small items that could be easily carried away and sold on.

"If you are offered the chance to buy gold jewellery at low prices please contact us.

"I would also urge residents to be watchful for people acting suspiciously in their community. If you see someone behaving oddly near your home or one of your neighbours' homes please call 999 immediately."

Anyone with information should call 101 quoting serial 791 of 19/3, email 101@sussex.pnn.police.uk or call the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.

Hope he kept all his receipts, seems to be an awfully large amount to keep in a suitcase.

And how unfortunate that a random burglar got lucky. How could they have known there would be a nice stash of £10k jewels just laying there?
