Officers are trying to locate the owners of pocket watches and other jewellery which were found in a stolen vehicle.
On Monday 3 June officers arrested a man in connection with the theft of a vehicle. When the vehicle was searched by officers items were recovered, and officers believe them to have been stolen.
Among the items recovered from the car were a gold and silver wrist watch inside a distinctive box, a silver pocket watch with an engraving on the back and a gold ring with red and silver stone, in a distinctive box.
Officers then carried out a search at the suspect’s address and more property which they believe to have been stolen was recovered.
This included a Sony laptop in silver, an Info Touch tablet in black, contained within a grey flip tablet case, an Archos 10 internet tablet, an Acer laptop in black and a silver and gold Rolex style wrist watch.
The arrested person, a 35-year-old Leicester man, has since been released pending further investigations.
