Thieves stole valuable jewellery worth thousands of pounds from a house on an exclusive Leeds estate.
Police are now looking for the two items stolen in the robbery and want any witnesses or anyone offered the items for sale to come forward.
The rare and expensive items were taken in a sneak-in raid at a house on Bondgate, which forms part of the Harewood House estate.
The thieves are thought to have made their way into the house through the back before making off with the jewellery, which is worth more than £8,000.
A spokesman for West Yorkshire police told the YEP: “The incident occurred on Wednesday, June 27 when the suspect/s are thought to have gained access to the house via woods at the rear of the property before fleeing the same way after stealing a number of jewellery items.
“This included a pearl bracelet with a diamond clasp valued at around £5,500 pounds and diamond bow-shaped broach valued at £3,000 pounds.”
The spokesman added: “Police are particularly keen to speak to anyone who may have been offered these distinctive items for sale and are asking them to get in touch.”
The Harewood Estate includes around ninety cottages in the village and within the park, some of which are offered for rent to the public.
Most of the buildings are Grade II Listed and form the major part of the original village.
Some of the cottages also provide homes for members of staff who work as part of the Harewood Estate.
Information given by the estate says some of the cottages are rented out to bring in extra income for the upkeep of buildings.
It adds: “Apart from contributing towards income, this also allows the estate to provide attractive homes to a wider public in an exclusive and highly desirable neighbourhood.”
Harewood village is also included in a conservation area, with the properties within its boundaries all of special architectural and historical interest.
Properties range from small character cottages to large detached houses.
Anyone with information about the robbery is asked to contact Detective Constable Paul Booth at Stainbeck CID on 101. Alternatively, contact Crimestoppers, anonymously and in confidence, on 0800 555 111.
