Yorkshire terrier stolen in Carnforth burglary

Police are appealing for information following a burglary in Carnforth in which a Yorkshire terrier was stolen. Although the dog has now been found, items stolen in the raid are still being sought.

Between 10.30am and 1.15pm on Friday 19th August, somebody broke into a house on Main Street in Whittington. They searched the property before leaving with various items of jewellery, including a gold watch, two gold chains and a diamond and sapphire Swarovski broach, as well as the four year old Yorkshire terrier ‘Honey’.

Fortunately Honey was micro-chipped and her 80-year-old owner was contacted the following day to say she had been found on Hobart Street in Bolton and was later reunited with her dog.

However, the jewellery remains outstanding and police are keen to speak with anybody who may have any information about the burglary.

“If anybody has any information at all about this offence then I would urge them to come forward," asks Detective Constable Jonathan Shaw. "Honey’s owner was left extremely upset at her disappearance, but thankfully she was returned to her.

“However, there are a number of items of jewellery which are still outstanding, which are not only of monetary value, but of sentimental value too.”

• Anybody with any information is asked to call police on 08451 25 35 45 or call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
