A family is counting the loss of a burglary in Breage that led to the theft of items of “great sentimental value”.

Among these were silver pieces engraved with the words “Thorley’s Special Prize” – believed to relate to the agricultural and farming suppliers of that name – a gold locket with the word “Mizpah” on it and an unusual iced water pitcher and cup, believed to have been from America.

They were taken during a burglary on a bungalow at Trevena Cross, which took place sometime during September or October.

DC Joanne Sodergren at Camborne CID, who is investigating the burglary described the items as being of “great sentimental value” and urged any with information about the burglary, who knows where the items are, or who can identify the person or people involved to contact her on 101, quoting reference AH/13/1266.

Alternatively calls can be made in confidence to Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
