TWO WAR medals of high sentimental value were among items taken during a burglary at a Webheath home.
Around £1,200 worth of damage was caused during the incident in Coleford Close at around midnight on Tuesday, August 20.
The burglary was reported by a neighbour at the time, but it was only when the occupants arrived back from holiday that police were able to establish what had been stolen.
The stolen goods included two First World War medals in their original envelopes, which had been presented to owner Keith Rowland’s grandfather, George William Rowland, who served in the Worcestershire Regiment and died in 1954. Also stolen were an Xbox and games worth £200 and a Nexus tablet worth £150.
A Redditch man in his 20s has been arrested on suspicion of burglary but has been released on police bail pending further inquiries.
Anyone with any information should call Detective Constable Colin Millward on 101, quoting incident number 631-s-290813, or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
