A stolen treasure trove of gold jewellery has been discovered in a builder's yard. Officers today released images of the haul in the hope of reuniting the items with their owners. The jewellery was found by a man at a builder's yard in Stroud Road, Woodside, on February 16 and handed in to the Ashburton Safer Neighbourhoods Team. Officers believe they may have been stolen from people in the local area and were dropped off or left behind by the culprits. Detective Inspector Brian Hobbs said: "These items were handed to us by a honest member of the public who literally found them lying on the floor. It's more than likely they were stolen - probably during burglaries - so we're simply trying to identify who the rightful owners are and reunite them with their property. "This also highlights the importance of people making a note and taking photos of their expensive jewellery items. If the worst happens and they are stolen, by having photos and a list and description of items, we can much more easily identify and reunite owners with property when we recover stolen goods. It also makes it easier for us to prove items have been stolen and prosecute those handling them as well." Anyone with information or who recognises any of the items should call Croydon police on 101.
