A CASH reward of up to £10,000 is being offered for anyone who can provide information that leads to the return of jewellery that was taken during a burglary in Lye last year.

Thieves took the jewellery, which was worth £100,000, from a property in Grange Road, between 1pm and 2.30pm on Friday December 6.

The offenders forced open a rear kitchen door, before ransacking the property and coming across a safe in the hallway.

They removed the safe, which was bolted to the floor, and left the premises through a side entrance.

The reward is being offered by the independent crime-fighting charity, Crimestoppers, The charity's West Midlands regional manager, Pauline Hadley, said: “A considerable amount of jewellery has been stolen during this burglary, which is not only of financial value, but also sentimental value as well."

She continued: “I would urge anyone with information on this incident to contact Crimestoppers anonymously, safe in the knowledge that your identity will never be revealed.”

Anyone with information about the incident, should fill out an anonymous online form at www.crimestoppers-uk.org or call 0800 555111.
