Detective Constable Nick Horn, of the Wakefield District Serious and Organised Crime Team, said: “We have released these images in the hope that we can not only ensure that any offence that’s been committed is fully investigated but also so that ultimately we can reunite these items with their rightful owners.

“We have been working with other police forces as part of our investigation but at this time have not linked these watches and items of jewellery to any reported burglaries.

"I would urge anyone who believes that these items belong to them to please make contact.”
