Between 12.40pm and 4pm on Friday 29 September the home of an elderly couple was broken into and several thousands of pounds worth of jewellery was stolen.
The property, on Wesley Street in Kirton in Lindsey, had been broken into causing damage to the property. The intruders had turned out drawers and cupboards and stolen watches, rings and other jewellery as well as an amount of cash.
Some of the jewellery is very unusual. Amongst the items stolen are a Pierre Cardin watch (as pictured) a diamond ring 1.3 carat yellow & white gold (as pictured) a diamond necklace 1.25 carat, 9 carat white gold (as pictured). Two items, a Suffragette watch with ‘VOTES FOR WOMEN’ on the face and a Suffragette ring with violet, white and green stones are rare and very unusual and would stand out. There were many other items of jewellery stolen as well
