£500 reward offered following York burglary

Posted on in Local appeals

The victims of a York burglary are offering a £500 reward after their house was broken into and around £10,000 worth of jewellery stolen.

It happened in daylight hours between 11.50am and 3.15pm on Tuesday 1 May 2018 when the offenders broke into a property on Foxwood Lane after the occupants left their home for a hospital appointment.

A rear window was smashed, and numerous items of  jewellery were stolen along with a safe which was forcibly removed from its wall mountings.

The offenders are believed to have left the scene, secreting stolen property within a distinctive black and white ‘zebra print’ throw that they have removed from the house.

Investigator Dave Pegg of York Investigation Hub, said: “This audacious break-in happened in broad daylight and has left the victims extremely upset, so much so that they have offered a £500 reward for information that leads to the arrest and charge of the suspects . I am appealing to anyone who either saw any suspicious people in the area in the days leading up to the break-in and to anyone who may have seen any suspicious activity on the day of the burglary to contact us. Your information will be treated in the strictest confidence.”
