Police release picture of coins stolen in Aldwick burglary


DISTINCTIVE coins have been stolen after an Aldwick home was burgled.

The coins were stolen during a burglary at a house in Stoney Stile Close.

The property was reported missing after residents returned from a trip away last month to find a burglar had broken into their home from the rear and that a number of items of jewellery had been taken.

These included:

•Gold sovereign coins featuring President Makarios of Cyprus and George III

•Two golden medallions from Rome with the signs of Alpha and Omega on them

•Two gold krugerrands from South Africa

•A gold wedding ring with ‘I LOVE YOU’ cut out of the outside of the band

•A gold folding charm bracelet from Russia with various gold eggs hanging from it, and

•A religious sacrament box used for giving communion with INS engraved on the lid.

A Sussex Police spokesman said: “We’re keen to speak to anyone who has been offered the chance to buy any of the items.

“Many of them are very distinctive and would be memorable if you saw them. If you know anything about them or the burglary, please call us.”

The crime took place between April 11 and 13.

Anyone with information should call 101 quoting serial 715 of 13/4, email 101@sussex.pnn.police.uk or call the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
