DOZENS of suspected stolen items of jewellery have been seized by police from a man in the street. The necklaces, earrings, watches and cutlery were taken from a 28-year-old man in Lower Addiscombe Road on October 28. Officers say they stopped the man after noticing he was carrying something underneath his jacket, and found a bag with the jewellery inside. They believe the jewellery may have been stolen, and are asking members of the public to get in touch if they recognise any of the items pictured. The 28-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of handling stolen goods. He has been bailed to return to a south London police station at the end of November pending further enquiries. Detective Constable Scott Barefoot, from Croydon CID, said: "If you recognise any of these items, then please get in touch. "We believe that the jewellery has been stolen and it is likely that it would have been from the Croydon area. "We would like to reunite the items with their rightful owners if possible and it will also assist with our investigations if we can establish to whom the items belong." Anyone who recognises any of the items or with information can contact DC Barefoot in Croydon CID on 020 3276 2219 or call police via 101.
