A FAMILY with five daughters has had heirlooms stolen in a raid at Stoke Gabriel.
Thieves stole 30 items of jewellery worth several thousand pounds in the raid two months ago.
Now in this week's Swagbag police are trying to find the stolen jewellery.
They say 15 of the items are of particular sentimental value because they once belonged to grandparents and great-grandparents.
The items had been divided into five lots to be handed down to the owners' five daughters.
The office in charge of the case, DC John Ford at Totnes police station, said: "The owners have lost quite a bit of jewellery. They had taken pictures for their will and separated it five different ways. There are 15 items which are most valuable because they are family heirlooms. The owner kept all the items laid out neatly in lines in jewellery boxes.
"We are really looking to see if people have bought these items or if jewellers themselves have perhaps bought them second-hand in good faith.
"They were stolen about two months ago."
Swagbag is a weekly feature with police and the Herald Express successfully working together to try to reunite people with their stolen items and help fight crime.
Anybody who recognises the items should ring DC Simon Sherwood on 01803 218114.
