Police officers are searching for the owners of some items of Asian jewellery found in an abandoned BMW 3 Series estate car in January.

The car was discovered on Thursday, January 26 and officers recovered the jewellery from inside.

Case investigator, Kate Devonshire based at Loddon Valley police station, said: "Our intelligence suggests that this jewellery could have been taken by a gang operating across county lines along the M4 and M40 corridor and West London. The items could have been stolen from a house in the east of the Thames Valley, West London, or Birmingham.

"If you have been a victim of a burglary and think this jewellery is yours we would ask you to contact Thames Valley Police enquiry centre on 101, as you might have vital information that could assist us in our investigation.

"Anyone with information should quote the reference 43170011663."
