Police officers are appealing for help from the public to identify the owners of a number of valuable items recovered following a recent arrest.

The items, found by neighbouring Surrey Police, include a selection of watches, a collectible whistle, an engraved lighter, a harmonica and commemorative coins.

Police believe some may be the proceeds from thefts carried out in Crawley or East Grinstead.

Investigating officer PC Chris Maisey said: "Many of these items are believed to be valuable, and are also likely to hold great sentimental value to those who have lost them, so it would be great to give them some good news and ensure they get their property back."

Anyone who recognises any of the items, or has any information on where they came from should call Surrey Police on 101, quoting reference 45140058525, or call independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
