Police seek owners of stolen jewellery after arrest

Have your say

POLICE are appealing for help in reuniting items of suspected stolen jewellery with their rightful owners.

A 51-year-old woman has been charged in connection with 13 alleged thefts in the south-west of Edinburgh between 2005 and 2011.

The woman has been reported to the procurator fiscal, and is due to appear at Edinburgh Sheriff Court at a later date.

As a result of the investigation, a number of items of jewellery have been recovered, and have not yet been returned to their owners.

Sergeant Robert Mackenzie said: “We appreciate some items might not have been reported as stolen to the police, with people instead thinking they’ve been lost or misplaced.

“All we require in the first instance is a description of the item of jewellery and we will progress from there.”

Anyone with any information relating to these items should contact Lothian and Borders Police on 0131-311 3131 and ask for Balerno police station.
