Officers are asking the owners of this property to come forward so it can be returned to them.

PC Vicky New from GMP’s Tameside district said: “The pocket watch in particular is very unique so we think it could have great sentimental value for someone who misses it and wants it be returned to its rightful owner.”

If anyone has any information about this jewelery and who it may belong to, please contact the police on 0161 856 9259 quoting log number 805 of 04/01/22.

Alternatively, reports can be made anonymously to the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
