POLICE in Birmingham have today released photographs of hundreds of valuables recovered from a property in Winson Green as part of a large scale burglary investigation.

Officers from West Midlands Police and South Staffordshire Police joined forces during the investigation and recovered the property from an address in Willes Road on 11 February 2011.

Officers hope that by releasing these images, rightful owners may recognise their heirlooms and ultimately be reunited with their property.

Items in the horde range in value from a few pounds to thousands of pounds and include Gucci wrist watches, diamond earrings, porcelain figures and old coins.

Detective Sergeant Steve Temperton, from Birmingham Central police station, said: “We have recovered a large amount of jewellery, watches and other items from the address in Winson Green.

“These items vary greatly in price, but many will be of sentimental value to their owners.

“Hopefully we can reunite a number of people with their property, and if we can make even one person happy by returning their valuables then it will be worth it.”

Four people have been arrested during this investigation on suspicion of burglary. Three have been released on police bail while the fourth was charged and remanded in custody.

If you think any of the photographed items may belong to you or a member of your family, please contact Detective Sergeant Steve Temperton at Birmingham Central police station on 0345 113 5000.

Callers will need proof that any items belong to them. This should ideally be in the form of a crime number from when the item was reported stolen.
