A large amount of 'sentimental' jewellery has been stolen from the home of an 'elderly and vulnerable' resident in Potten End.
Officers from Hertfordshire Police are now investigating the theft, which happened between November 1 last year and January 5 this year.
The address of the property has not been disclosed to protect the resident, but cops hope that anyone who may have been offered anything similar to the items stolen could potentially help their investigation.
PC David Purvis, who is investigating the crime, said: “This jewellery is of significant sentimental value to the victim, who is a lady aged in her 70s.
“I am appealing to anyone who believes they may have been offered any of this jewellery for sale or thinks they know who is responsible for this theft to get in touch by calling Hertfordshire Constabulary’s non-emergency number 101, quoting crime reference D2/17/32.
