Police are appealing for witnesses after medals with a huge sentimental value were stolen during a house burglary in Crowhurst.
The medals, which belonged to the victim’s late father, were taken from a property in Forewood Lane sometime between September 30 and October 15.
Pieces of jewellery, silverware and a number of antiques were also taken during the burglary. The estimated value of the stolen items is believed to be in excess of £8,000.
Officers investigating the burglary are appealing for any information which could help return the sentimental medals to their rightful owner, and identify those responsible for the theft.
They are keen to speak to anyone who saw any suspicious behaviour in the area around the relevant time, or anyone who sees medals matching those in the photo being offered for sale.
Anyone with information that could assist the investigation is asked to contact police online or by calling 101 quoting serial 704 of 19/10.
