Wirral Globe: Police appeal for owners of stolen property Police appeal for owners of stolen property

DO you recognise any of these items?

They were among a large quantity of suspected stolen property recovered from an address in Birkenhead on July 2 and detectives want their owners to get in touch.

Police carried out a warrant at a house on Newling Street. Once inside, they found a large quantity of property which they believe may have been stolen, including bicycle frames and a quantity of war medals.

A 36-year-old man was arrested at the address on suspicion of theft. He has been questioned by officers and has since been released on police bail pending further enquiries.

An investigation to establish the full circumstances surrounding the incident is continuing.

Acting Sergeant Alan McKeon, Birkenhead Neighbourhood, said: "We have recovered a significant amount of property which we believe may have been stolen from across Wirral over the last 6 months.

"It includes bicycle frames, military badges and insignia and also a quantity of war medals.

"With many people's minds on the events all over Merseyside to mark 100 years since the start of World War One, it would be very fitting, if the items are stolen, if we could reunite some of them with their rightful owners.

"We have released pictures of some of the items and will also be including a full gallery on the Merseyside Police web-site.

"I would appeal to people to take a really good look at the pictures and get in touch with us if they recognise any of the items."

Anyone with information can call police on 0151 777 2204 or via the 101 number, quoting reference 0514124253. You can also call Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
