Sentimental jewellery stolen from elderly Long Eaton couple

Posted on 15th March 2019

Officers are appealing for information after an elderly couple were robbed of jewellery and cash from their home in Long Eaton.

The victims, a man in his 80s and woman in her 70s, were in their home in St John’s Street, Long Eaton, when three men barged in after knocking on the door.

The men pushed the man aside and demanded jewellery and cash. A number of distinctive, sentimental pieces of jewellery were stolen along with a significant amount of money.

The three men are described as being white, aged in their early 20s. All were dressed in dark clothing and had their faces covered and were of slim, muscular build.

Officers are now appealing for information from anyone who may have been in the St John’s Street area of Long Eaton at around 8pm on Friday, February 1.

Drivers and homeowners who may have dashcam footage in the area at the time, or CCTV from the St John’s Street or the surrounding area, are asked to review their video and, if anything of note is seen, then footage should be downloaded and stored safely for an officer to view.

Officers are also keen to speak to anyone who may have seen any of the items of jewellery pictured or been offered them for sale.
