Dozens of items of jewellery, ranging from rings to watches, were recovered by Gardaí in Dún Laoghaire during a crackdown on organised crime gangs.

A Garda spokesman said some of the jewellery had not been formally appraised, so they were not able to say how much the haul was worth.

“But the items may well hold monetary, if not sentimental, value for their rightful owners and could include treasured family heirlooms,” they added.

If you have been a victim of a burglary (or know someone who has), please view these items; https://m.flickr.com/… and contact Gardaí on 016665000 with any information.

Anyone making a claim for the items will have to prove to Gardaí that they are owners through receipts, photographs, valuation records, inscriptions on the items themselves or statements to Gardai following burglaries.

Anyone who believes the items to be theirs is asked to contact the Organised Crime Unit on 01 666 3434 to begin the process of returning the items to their owners.
