POSSESSIONS worth more than £1,700, along with £55 cash, have been stolen after a burglary in Barnt Green.
The incident, at the property in Blackwell Road, happened between 3.50pm and 7.15pm on Sunday (September 8).
The raiders gained access to the house by smashing a window and then took the money, along with a solid silver round tray with three legs worth £800, a £500 Sony digital camera and a solid silver trophy cup worth £200. A pair of rose gold cuff links worth £100, five watches with leather straps worth £25 and an £80 Sekonda ladies' link watch were also snatched.
Other items included a silver bowl on four legs, a solid silver toast rack, egg cup and jug, a silver plated fruit bowl and a smaller plated bowl, seven christening mugs engraved with various initials, a silver match box with pictures of small fish on it, a Tissot man’s watch engraved with the words Ten Year Hard Labour and a small Chinese clock. The values of those are unknown.
The police are also appealing for information on another incident - an attempted burglary - which also happened in Barnt Green on Sunday, at around 5.15pm.
The door of the house in Cherry Hill Drive was kicked in, but it is thought the culprits fled after being disturbed by an alarm.
Officers are trying to trace a white woman in her 40s who was walking in Cherry Hill Drive at the time. She told a neighbour she had seen three people running away and it is believed she may have information which could assist the inquiry.
Anyone with any information on either incident should call Det Con Jim Guinivan on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
A youth and a man were arrested in connection with the Cherry Hill Drive attempted burglary. They have been released on police bail pending further inquiries.
