The first burglaries in the recent spate of offences saw motorbikes taken from the Heath area of Uttoxeter.

One was stolen from Harvey Place between 11pm on October 30 and 6.30am on October 31 and was found abandoned and damaged later that morning.

A second was taken from Park Avenue between 11.40pm on October 30 and 12.30pm on October 31.

Police inquiries led to the location and recovery of the vehicle.

On November 5, laptops and hard drives containing pictures of Liberty Turner, who died in a car accident aged just 20, were stolen from her mum’s house in Chaffinch Drive.

All lines of enquiry have been ‘exhausted’ by police but they will review the case if any new information comes to light.

A large stone lion garden ornament was reported stolen from a front garden of a house in Holly Road between 4pm on November 9 and 1.45am on October 10.

Officers carried out house-to-house enquires and no other lines of inquiry were identified.

Laptops, a television and a games console were taken from a house in Bramshall Road between 8.30am and 3.30pm on December 19.

The offenders forced entry to a home and stole a 27-inch Samsung LCD TV, a Dell laptop and a Nintendo Wii.

Inquiries are ongoing and anyone with information is asked to contact Staffordshire Police on 101, quoting incident number 535 of December 19.

A home in Swallow Close saw electrical items, including a Playstation Vita and iPod Touch, and items of jewellery, including an 18-carat diamond engagement ring and an 18-carat gold slim wedding band, taken between 6am on January 9 and 10.25am on January 10.

Then, on January 13, Marlborough Way was targeted between 8.15am and 6pm on January 13, with thieves taking a Sony Playstation 3 and jewellery box containing items including a 9 carat gold necklace and matching earrings.

Anyone with information about the two latter offences is asked to call Staffordshire Police on 101 or Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
