Burglaries are believed to be linked

POLICE believe that a burglary in Wallsend where thousands of pounds worth of goods were stolen is linked to two other burglaries in the area.

The occupant of the house in King’s Road had disturbed two intruders at 11.43am on Thursday, February 21.

They had broken in and stole jewellery, cash and electrical items worth thousands of pounds.

Items included an 18ct yellow gold with five brilliant cut diamonds, a yellow gold ring with three diamonds, an 18ct gold flush set brilliant cut diamond necklace, a gold bangle with matching earrings, a Canon 600d digital camera, model EF555-250, two black iPods, blue iPod Touch and some euros.

Both men were white, one 6ft tall of proportionate build, aged in his late 20s or early 30s, with short dark hair, wearing a black jacket and black trousers.

The second man was slightly shorter and older, of stocky build, with short fair hair and he was also wearing a black jacket and black trousers.

They got into a brown people carrier style vehicle, possibly driven by a third man.

Police believe this incident may be linked to a second burglary in the same street, which happened just before at about 11am, where shoes were stolen.

A third burglary also took place in Blackhill Avenue last week, where intruders stole a Panasonic television, Toshiba laptop and Philips television, green iPad mini, Xbox games console and games, Panasonic blu-ray player and blue iPod mini.

Officers are keeping an open mind about whether this is linked to the others in King’s Road.
