Police are hoping to trace the owners of an eclectic collection of jewellery, religious books and power tools recovered during a search of a house in Melton last month.

The items include an Evolution circular saw, a heavy duty jump starter kit, Dewalt XR2 cordless drill, Hitchi 18v cordless drill, a Cronova quartz ladies’ watch with a bracelet made from five strings of pearl, a number of strings of pearl, a well-used Holy Bible with illustrations and maps, and another religious book with an attached prayer from the Mother Teresa Children’s Foundation.

Police constable Jonathan Goddard, who is investigating the case, said: “I’d appeal to people particularly in the Melton and Charnwood areas to have a look at the photos (on Leicestershire Police’s Flickr site) to see if they recognise any of their property.

“In total we recovered more than 50 watches, more than 20 pieces of jewellery, some lap top computers and mobile phones. We’ve not been able to upload photos of everything so even if you don’t see your belongings, please give me a call and I’ll see if I can identify your items.”

Anyone with information should call Pc 2971 Jonathan Goddard on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.

l A 40-year-old man has been arrested and is currently on police bail while further enquiries are carried out.
