Police are appealing for information after an antique bronze statuette was stolen during a burglary in Tewkesbury at the end of last month.
It was reported that unknown offenders had forced entry to a property on Pyke Road between 2pm on 27 October and 1pm on 28 October before stealing a number of items including the antique statuette.
The bronze statuette, which dates from the mid-19th century, depicts classical figure Urania and has a celestial globe in the left hand and dividers in the right. It is only 10" x 8" but is quite heavy so the offenders may have struggled to get it out of the property.
The other stolen items included car keys, passports, a white memory stick, data pack and a large quantity of jewellery. The passports were later recovered in a bag in the garden of a different property.
Officers are asking anyone who witnessed suspicious activity in the area or has been offered the items for sale to please get in contact.
Information can be submitted online by using the following form and quoting incident 217 of 28 October: https://www.gloucestershire.police.uk/tua/tell-us-about/cor/tell-us-about-existing-case-report/
