MORE than 200 items of jewellery are going on display this weekend as police try to identify a hoard of items recovered following police raids in recent months.

The raids have been carried out at addresses in Norfolk and Cambridgeshire over the last 10 months in connection with armed robberies and aggravated burglaries across west Norfolk and the Fens between August last year and February this year.

The recovered jewellery includes gold watches, coins, sovereigns, rings, necklaces, earrings, bracelets and brooches.

Det Sgt Andy Lovick, of Norfolk's Major Investigation Team (MIT), said: “We are keen to identify as much of this property as possible.

“We have already contacted a large number of burglary victims personally by letter and invited them to attend this exhibition. But we would also encourage anyone else who may have had items of jewellery stolen from them over the last 10 months, and has not for whatever reason reported the crime, to come along and see if they can identify their property.”

The exhibition is between 10.30am and 4.30pm on Saturday at Weeting Bowls Club in Lynn Road, Weeting.
