Bid to reunite owner with valuable coins stolen in burglary

Police are asking for your help, following a burglary in the Fulwood area of Sheffield in which a number of sentimental coins were stolen.

At around 6pm on Thursday 13 December, a house on St Albans Road was broken into and a large number of collectors coins stolen, including double sovereigns, sovereigns, half-sovereigns and sets of both silver and gold limited edition sets (pictured).

The coins are of huge sentimental value to the woman who lives at the house as they belonged to her husband, who recently passed away.

Officers want to hear from anyone who has been offered the coins for sale, or who saw or heard anything suspicious that evening.

If you can help, please call 101 quoting incident number 269 of 14 December 2018. You can also pass information to Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
