POLICE in South Devon are keen to reunite burglary victims with more stolen property.

In the latest instalment of our new weekly column, we have more items which are suspected to be stolen and police are trying to trace who they belong to.

Every week we will be featuring distinctive items which have been seized by police officers throughout South Devon.

In the swag bag this week is a print of a picture entitled Monarch of The Glen by Sir Edwin Lanseer 1851.

There is an inscription on the back saying 'Happy Anniversary 1993'.

There is also a Power Bilt golf bag with some golf clubs of the same make which are more junior size so could have belonged and been used by a child or teenager.

Finally, there is a Fuji Instax Polaroid camera with its case. Officers say it is a 'bit unusual' and is in very good condition.

Det Con Simon Sherwood, from the South Devon pro-active unit which targets offenders, said: "Each of these items was found in different police searches carried out over the past weeks.

"These searches have come up with everything from these golf clubs which are quite unique to a nice print.

"We are keen to hear from anyone with information. What we don't want is for people to look at the items and think they could know something but they are not sure and not contact us. If anybody has any suspicion or could be any assistance to us in any way then we want them to call.

"They may know how we can identify, know where you can buy or where items are produced or in terms of military items they may have belonged to the regiment and know about its history or how we could research it.

"Anyone may be able to help get items back to their owners safely but they may not realise they have the crucial information we need. I would rather speak to people with any thoughts which can help us explore other avenues.

"Also if people do recognise the items but they have not reported them to us as stolen before, they can still do so.

"Don't hesitate to get in touch. We know everyone is busy and if items were in a shed or something, they may not have contacted police at the time.

"They can still come forward to tell us what has happened and we can still use that as evidence.

"We also want to hear from people who believe they have seen stolen items elsewhere. They don't have to be tied down to what they see in the photos to get in touch.

"They can pass on any information about any other property and speak to me direct."
