Members of the public could be eligible for a reward of up to £1,000 if they have information on a recent Uttlesford burglary [10 December 2013].

The reward is available from the independent charity Crimestoppers for information leading to the arrest and charge of the individual(s) responsible for the incident. The burglary occurred some time between 10.45am and 12.35pm on 13th  November after the front door was forced open at a property in Duck Lane, Little Easton. Items stolen include a gentleman's gold ring with tiger’s eye design, a Tiffany Picasso bangle in hammered gold, a gold vintage Rolex watch, a rose gold, yellow gold & platinum Russian wedding ring and a ring set with an aqua marine stone in the centre.

Amongst the items stolen was a marquise-shaped diamond cluster ring dating back to about 1900.

Crimestoppers, which allows people to give information 100% anonymously on the 24/7 number 0800 555 111 and via an Anonymous Online Form, is urging members of the public to come forward with information to help catch those responsible.

Ann Scott, Eastern Regional Manager for Crimestoppers said: “Burglary not only robs you of your personal belongings but it robs you of feeling safe in your own home. Please come forward to the independent charity Crimestoppers so this crime can be solved. We do not ask for your name and no call is traced or recorded. You won’t have to give a statement, speak to the police or go to court – we only want to know what you know, not who you are. In the 25 years that Crimestoppers has been running we have never broken our anonymity promise.”

She added: “In particular we are appealing for information on this distinctive diamond ring which is of great sentimental value to the family. Did someone you know display unusual behaviour that week? Has someone confessed to being involved? Perhaps someone witnessed the event or saw suspicious activity in the area? Have you been offered this ring or any of the other items? Crimestoppers wants to receive any information, no matter how insignificant it may seem.”

Only information given to Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 that leads to an arrest and charge is eligible for the reward. Information can be given online but information will not be eligible for a reward this way.
