Asian gold burglaries

Alert message sent 17/01/2020 09:46:00

Information sent on behalf of Notts Police

We have been experiencing some dwelling house burglaries in the Rushcliffe area, believed to be targeting Asian gold jewellery.
Many Asian families will keep their jewellery safe away from their address, but will bring it to their home around the time of a special event.

Please ensure that if you have valuable items of jewellery in your home, that it is placed in a very secure safe, out of sight. The safe needs to be securely bolted to a substantial wall and ideally out of sight.

On one occasion in West Bridgford, the victim reports that a few days before the offence they had a caller by a person making enquiries about a carpenter at their address. It is not clear if that person is connected to the burglary, but appears suspicious.

Our advice is if you have someone calling to your address asking to do work or making some strange enquiry, please contact the Nottinghamshire Police force control as quickly as possible, giving as good a description as you can, age, sex, height, colour of skin, clothing etc.
