THE owners of jewellery believed to have been stolen are being sought by police after items were seized from a van in Stafford.
The seized jewellery includes an unusual Australian brooch and earring set, a nine carat gold ring with a pearl and a number of pairs of earrings within a red jewellery box. It is suspected the jewellery was stolen during a burglary in the West Midlands area.

A Staffordshire Police spokeswoman said: “Officers stopped the van and discovered a number of full charity clothing collection bags and jewellery. The occupants, two men from Walsall aged 21 and 29, were arrested on suspicion of theft. They remain on bail pending further inquiries.
Anyone who recognises any of the jewellery, or has information on the thefts, is asked to contact PC Cara Goodey at Staffordshire Police on 101, quoting incident number 145 of December 5. Alternatively, they can contact Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.”
