A man’s gold bracelet, a wooden jewellery box, a handmade wooden pencil box with ‘J’ inscribed on it, a leather cuff link box with two sets of cuff links in it featuring the West Buckland School shield and a pair British Legion badges were among the items taken. A black Acer laptop, model 5553G, a black Sony MP3 Walkman and £120 cash were also stolen.
