JEWELLERY was stolen from an elderly victim in Gosport.

Police are investigating the burglary at Masten Crescent in which a gold necklace, gold ring and several pairs of earrings were stolen from a 79-year-old woman.

The victim returned home, between 9am and 11am on December 10, to find an old woman sat in her living room.

Three men then walked downstairs, one carrying a pillow case-sized bag, which was made out of a mesh material.

The bag had a bulge in it as if there was property inside.

The three men and woman then left the address and drove off in a large silver car.

After they left, the victim noticed that a number of items of jewellery were missing from her bedroom.

They included a necklace with tiny gold droplets from the chain, a gold ring, a pair of emerald earrings in a silver case and a pair with sapphire blue stones.

Several other pairs were also stolen along with a silver photo frame without a photograph.

One of the men was slim, tall, in his late 20s to early 30s, wearing a grey suit with brown hair which was slicked back.

The other two were smartly dressed in jackets and trousers.

The woman was scruffy looking and needed the men to help her get out of the chair.

Detective Constable Sandra Peet, said: ‘This burglary took place I broad daylight in a quiet area.

‘Were you in the area at the time of the incident? Did you see anything suspicious or did you see the offenders in the area?

‘I would urge anyone with any information to come forward and speak to us.’

Anyone with any information is asked to contact DC Peet at Fareham CID by calling 101 or call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111, where information can be left anonymously.
