Police are appealing for information after family heirlooms and expensive designer jewellery were stolen from a Dulwich home last Saturday.

Police were called at approximately 20:20hrs on 20 January to reports of a burglary in Alleyn Road, SE21.

It is believed that two men smashed a hole in the back door while the homeowners were out, as a third man on a moped or motorbike kept lookout across the road.

Police have released photos of some of the items that were stolen, which include designer jewellery, handbags, beauty products and two iPads.

DC Rob Graham, who is leading the investigation, said: “The victims have lost a large amount of personal property, including some family heirlooms which were of huge sentimental value to them.

“Following enquiries, I believe the suspects were spooked by the sound of the property’s alarm and fled the scene.

“Did you see three men in the area acting suspiciously?

“I would also appeal for anyone who recognises these items and has information on where they are to do the right thing and contact the police.”

One of the men was described as wearing a hooded top.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Walworth CID on 020 72326227 or 101.
