Police who found a stash of stolen jewellery at a Padiham house hope to reunite it with the rightful owners.

The jewellery was uncovered during a raid at an address in Graham Street last month.

Barry Duxbury (35), of Graham Street, was subsequently sentenced to 29 months in prison at Burnley Crown Court for a burglary offence on Padiham Road on October 6th.

Police believe the jewellery may be of sentimental value and say it could have been stolen during a burglary in the Padiham area over the last six months.

Officers have now released photographs of the stolen items in the hope that they are recognised by the rightful owners and can be returned.

The items include a gold coloured necklace with a gold coloured crucifix and a gold coloured pendant set with blue and white stones in a flower shape.

A gold coloured necklace with white stones was also recovered along with a silver coloured Ben Sherman watch, a Phillip Persio velcro strap watch and a black cigarette pouch with metal lighter.

PC Jane Gregson said: “We believe that the items may have been stolen during a burglary in the Padiham area and are releasing details in the hope that the owners of this property may recognise them.

“I’m sure some have sentimental value so I would appeal to anyone with knowledge of these items to call Burnley Police on 101 and quote log number LC-20121011-0529.”
