Are these stolen items yours? Police hope to find the local owners

Police are trying re-unite these items of property, which they believe were stolen, with their rightful owners.

Officers have seized over 100 items during the past year following information provided from a member of public in relation to suspected stolen property being sold at a car boot sale.

Much of the property has been successfully returned to their owners, but a few items remain. Police are asking local people to see if they recognise any of the items pictured here.

PC Mike Homewood told "We have been able to return much of the property we seized but we are keen to return everything and speak to people who either didn’t report a burglary or who may not have realised something has been taken."

"We have made an arrest in relation to several burglaries in the Sedgemoor area from which the property is believed to have come from."

"In addition to the items shown in photos, we also have a number of travellers cheques and foreign currency."

"If you believe any of the items are yours, please contact me on the 101 number and quote 5215005767."

"You will need to be able to prove ownership either by providing receipts, photographic evidence, descriptions of distinguishing marks or serial numbers."

He added: "I would also encourage people to property mark any high-value or sentimental items so if the worst happens and they are stolen, we can return them more easily. Property marking items can also act as a deterrent to thieves."
