POLICE are looking to reunite an expensive designer handbag with its owner.

The tan-coloured Mulberry handbag was recovered after an investigation at an address in Petersfield.

It is thought the handbag may have been stolen.

The bag had a matching purse and card holder.

It also held a receipt for a purchase made abroad which the genuine owner would be able to verify with police.

PC Lucia Davies, from the Waterlooville Priority Crime Team, said: ‘The bag was recovered as part of an ongoing investigation into a serious offence.

‘Finding its owner could help with this investigation.’

Police believe the handbag could have been stolen from anywhere in Hampshire.

Anyone with information should contact the Waterlooville team on 0845 045 45 45.
