A STAFFORD family is offering a £1,000 reward for information after £50,000 of jewellery was stolen from their Wildwood home.
Raiders struck at the Lansdowne Way property between 9am and 8pm on Friday, August 31.
After ransacking the house the thieves escaped with a haul which included rings, earrings, necklaces, bracelets, bangles and a Tikli - a golden ornament worn on the forehead.
Some of the pieces are traditional 22 carat Indian gold.
Detectives are appealing for information about the theft and the victims have offered £1,000 as a reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the culprits.
DC John Owen said: “House burglary is particularly upsetting for any victim. The victim’s personal space and privacy are invaded, and it can sometimes take a long time for those victims to recover.
“This burglary is extremely upsetting for the family concerned. Expensive personal jewellery has been stolen.
“It is not only the extremely high value, but the sentimental value of the jewellery that makes this particularly upsetting.
“I would ask if anyone has any information whatsoever with regards to finding those responsible, or to the return of the jewellery, to contact me directly.
“There is a reward being offered by the family, which will be payable on return of the jewellery, or on the conviction of those responsible.” Anyone with any information should contact DC Owen on 101, extension 4007 or Crimestoppers anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
