Rare silver antique stolen in Burwell raid

POLICE have released an image of a distinctive silver antique that was stolen in a burglary.

The salt, pepper and mustard dispenser, which is in the shape of jockey’s boots and hat, was stolen with other silver items in a burglary at a property in Heath Road, Burwell, on June 15.

Other items stolen include a tea caddy, six silver ducks, and a cheese wedge.

It is not known what the items are worth, although they are believed to be valuable and are of sentimental value to the victim.

PC Kelly Purkiss, who is investigating, said: “The victim is upset that these items have been stolen, not because of their financial value but because they are family heirlooms.

“I hope the item pictured, which is very distinctive, prompts someone to come forward with the information I need to find the person responsible and recover the stolen goods.”

Anyone with information is asked to contact PC Purkiss on 101, or Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555111.
