The break-ins at the three charity shops and Crick and Mardling solicitors happened overnight on Thursday 21st February to Friday 22nd February. Nothing was stolen from Crick and Mardling but a number of items, including jewellery and cash, were stolen from the charity shops. There was also an attempted break-in at the Donna Louise Trust charity shop.

Officers are currently investigating the incidents, including whether or not they are linked, and are appealing for anyone with information to come forward.

PC Chris Moss, investigating officer, said: “We have seized a number of items of jewellery which we suspect to be stolen property. However, we would like to hear from anyone who recognises the items as ones they have recently donated to the charity shops.”

Three men, two aged 28 and a 35-year-old, all from Stoke-on-Trent, have been arrested on suspicion of burglary and released on bail pending further inquiries.

Anyone with any information should contact PC Chris Moss at Staffordshire Police on 101, quoting incident number 111 of February 22. Alternatively, you can call independent charity Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
