STOLEN property seized by police from a property in the Upton area of Torquay features in this week's Swagbag.

A man stopped by the South Devon Proactive Team in December last year was found to be in possession of controlled drugs.

When officers carried out a subsequent search of his address in Upton, property was seized. Some of that property has already been identified as stolen.

In Swagbag the police and the Herald Express are teaming up to help reunite burglary victims with their stolen property in this weekly column. We feature distinctive items which have been seized by police officers throughout South Devon.

The South Devon pro-active unit targets offenders and regularly carries out warrants and searches to recover stolen property. The items featured are suspected stolen goods, which police are trying to trace the owners of.

This week Det Con Simon Sherwood from the unit is keen to speak to anyone who recognises the two sets of keys and a gold coloured 'snake' bangle (pictured).

DC Sherwood said: "Two officers stopped and searched a male known to them which revealed drugs."

Anyone with any information in relation to this or any other suspected stolen property is asked to call DC Sherwood on 01803 841614.

    Let me guess, the guy was living in Upton rent free, benefits paid for by us, having tea and sympathy sessions at a drug rehab centre around castle circus, which of course means the police cannot ban him from the ares because, wait for it, he needs to use the services.
