Main article content
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.
