Chance to get your stolen property back

Tuesday, 20th April 2010.

Police are inviting burglary victims from Haverhill and the surrounding areas to get in touch with them to see if any recently recovered property is theirs.

More than 85 items, including power tools and gardening equipment, were recovered from a property in Essex in November 2009 and officers are hoping to reunite them with their owners.

Officers have already had some success matching owners and their property. A similar property roadshow was held in Great Dunmow to give people living in North Essex the chance to identify their property.

PC Sandra Wiggins says: “We believe that many of these items originally come from south-west Suffolk or north-west Essex and may have been stolen from June 2009 onwards, and officers have been researching crimes and working with neighbouring forces to try to identify owners.

“We have a vast array of tools and other items worth many thousands of pounds which must belong to someone.

"We are asking anyone who may have been the victim of a burglary where similar objects were taken to get in touch with us so we can see if your property is among the items recovered.”

The pieces recovered range from tools, power tools, and powered garden tools to generators, compressors and jet washers.

The items will be on display for public viewing at Haverhill Police Station this Saturday, April 24, between 11am and 1pm, and anyone who thinks there may be property belonging to them in the collection can attend.

There will be a requirement to provide some proof the item belongs to you, such as serial numbers, sales receipts or photographs.

The aim of the initiative is to reunite as many people with their property as possible.
