POLICE in Gloucester are appealing for information after two burglaries and the discovery of suspected stolen property in one street in the city over the weekend.
An elderly woman was left extremely shaken after waking up to find her house in Teddington Gardens had been broken into overnight, some time between 9pm on Friday (October 11) and 5am on Saturday (October 12).
The offenders had forced their way into the property and stolen several hundred pounds in cash, two antique gold watches, two gold rings and two patterned gold bangles - one with a distinctive dent in it and a broken clasp.
A nearby residential garage was also broken into on the same night, with meat taken from a freezer.
Police believe the incidents may be connected to a report of two men acting suspiciously in the road at about 1.15am on Saturday. They are described as Asian and dressed in dark clothing. Officers would like to speak to these men.
In what may be another linked incident, suspected stolen property was found on the same street on Saturday.
A set of golf clubs, two scalextric sets, a bag of tools, ladies boots and a pack of toilet rolls were discovered in a hedge on the road by a member of the public.
Anyone who believes the property may be theirs should call 101, quoting incident 212 of October 12.
Anyone with information about the burglaries should also call 101, quoting incident 122 of October 12.
