Thousands of pounds taken in burglary

First published in South Essex

A RAIDER stole jewellery and thousands of pounds from a house while the owners were at home.

The burglar broke into a house in Browns Avenue, Runwell, through a skylight window before being disturbed by the owners.

They left the house and ran off across a nearby field. He was wearing a dark hooded top.

It happened between 1.30pm and 1.50pm on Tuesday, August 26.

The stolen items include a ring with an open mouthed teeth design on it, a yellow metal ring with ‘Donna’ written on it, another yellow metal ring with ‘mum’ written in white stones and a gold ring ‘Wayne’ written on it.

Cash totalling around £2,000 was also taken.

Dc Ray Hull of Chelmsford CID said: "I would like to appeal for anyone in the area who may have seen anything suspicious to come forward and speak to me. I would also like to hear from anyone who may have been offered any of the jewellery items for sale.”

Anyone with any information is asked to contact Dc Ray Hull at Chelmsford CID on Essex Police 101 or they can leave information anonymously by calling independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.

Whilst in no way supporting crime, especially when the owners are in the property, as this so easily leads to violence against the innocent, I just wish the proof readers could spend a little time on sorting out the singular from the plural. This actually seems to read that the burglar and the male owner made of accross the fields. But, who wants to wake up with some rancid idiot sharing your bedroom? It could lead to a really bad situation for anybody or all of the people. I know the filthy rich have guns, but what are the decent folk to do?

I would also like to place on record that - a few hours ago - I contacted the office of massively (over) paid PCC Mr. Alston regarding his bizarre comments on a "Traveller" story. Immediately - the option to comment on that was withdrawn and all existing comments were deleted.

ECHO- who took that decision, please????

That's right, tell everyone this family keep money and jewellery at home so the next scumbag looking for a quick bug knows where to go and how to access the property ... maybe this time they will watch fro the owner to leave!

in todays greedy world £2000 is not much money!

Not so hidden identity eh... shoplifters of the world unite and all that. We know you're the same little illiterate scrote so your new nom de plume isn't fooling anybody.

And it's "the burglar must HAVE know this..." not "must OF".

Oh and with regard to your other comment, most people NEED money these days but we don't all go around nicking it.

That said, anybody who keeps two grand in their house must be mad these days.

Still, that's no reason for scumbags to break in and take it.

The only part of your comments I actually agree with is your last sentence. It does beg the question - are the burglars known to their victims?

You really are a very shabby excuse for a man.

The police know who or have a very good idea who's responsible for most burglaries. Most are related to drugs - addicts need money to pay for their fixes and the easiest thing for them to do is break into a few houses or mug a few people. They don't give a f*£k who they hurt as long as they get their fix.
