Members of the public in South West London and Surrey are being invited to identify and reclaim valuable stolen goods this week after Police raided a local cash brokers.

The haul, which included more than 600 items believed to have been stolen, was carried out last September after a search warrant was issued at the cash brokers in the High Street in Staines-upon-Thames.

The recovered items included jewellery, rings and watches, many believed to be very valuable and are believed to have been stolen after thefts and burglaries across Surrey and London recently. Photos of the items have been posted on

Detective Superintendent John Bosher said: "It is vital that we trace the rightful owners of the recovered items as quickly as possible so I am urging members of the public to look at the online pictures of the items and let us know if they recognise anything.

"We are doing everything possible to return the items but we can only do this if people visit, where they will find photos of the recovered items, and let us know who the jewellery and other objects pictured belong to.

"We are particularly keen to speak to anyone who has been a victim of crime or who knows anyone who has been the victim of a burglary or theft across Surrey or in surrounding areas such as south west London, over the last year.

"Many of these items are very valuable, and are also likely to hold great sentimental value to those who have lost them, so it would be great to give them some good news and ensure they get their property back.

"We would also like to hear from anyone who used the shop to legitimately borrow cash under a '28 day buy back scheme' as these items will have also been recovered in the seizure."

Anyone who recognises any of the items on Pinterest, or has any information on where they came from should call Surrey Police on 101, quoting reference SL/13/6343, or call independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
