Appeal to trace owners of jewellery taken in series of Black Country burglaries

By Dayna Farrington | Wolverhampton | Crime | Published:

Police are trying to identify the owners of jewellery that they believe was stolen during a series of burglaries in the Black Country in June.

Do you recognise these items?

A Seat Ibiza was stolen from a house in Poplar Avenue, in Wolverhampton, overnight on June 22.

The stolen Seat was then stopped in Brandhall, in the Sandwell area, five days later, on June 27, following a police pursuit and three people were arrested.

The car was recovered for forensic examination and a number of jewellery items were recovered from the car.

A spokesman from West Midlands Police said: "We believe the jewellery was taken from burglaries in this five-day period. We would really like to reunite this jewellery with the owners.

"If you recognise any of these items, and believe they belong to you, or you have any further information about these burglaries, please make contact."

Joseph Foley, aged 22, of Thatchway Gardens, in Birmingham; Jordan Lewis, aged 19, of Titania Close, in Frankley; and a 17-year-old, who can't be named for legal reasons, have been charged with aggravated vehicle taking and dangerous driving.

They all appeared before Wolverhampton Magistrates Court on June 29, where they were remanded to appear at a later date.

Anyone who recognises the items is asked to call DC Richard Crabb from the force priorities team, by emailing, quoting crime reference number 20WV/144856E/20.
