Delanns Jewellery Robbery - Appeal for Witnesses

Message from TVP:

We are renewing our appeal for witnesses following a robbery in Burford.

The incident happened at around 6.15pm on Sunday 19 November, when six offenders approached a man and a woman as they got out of their vehicle on Burford High Street.

The offenders stole a significant amount of jewellery from the rear of the car and left the scene in more than one vehicle.

One vehicle the offenders made off in was a dark coloured SUV.

Neither the man or woman were injured as a result of the incident. 

Further investigation has found that the SUV was displaying false number plates which had been stolen from another vehicle in the local area shortly before the robbery. 

Witnesses may have seen this vehicle parked at the side of the road between the Burford High Street and the A40, and possibly somewhere along Priory Lane and Tanners Lane, prior to the incident.

Some of the items stolen have been recovered after being discarded just outside the village of Hatford, which is off the A420 near Stanford in the Vale, on the Ridgeway outside Letcombe Regis, Wantage, and in Farley Hill towards Finchampstead.

Investigating officer Detective Constable Paddy O’Grady, said: “We are continuing our investigation following this robbery and are following a number of lines of enquiry, however at this time no arrests have been made.

“This incident happened in the early evening on Burford High Street, so we are sure that there are witnesses who may have information who have not yet come forward.

“We would ask anyone who saw this incident, or may have seen the getaway vehicle prior to the incident to please get in touch.

“Additionally if anyone has CCTV or dash-cam footage please can they get in touch if it shows anything which may assist our enquiries.

“You can contact us by calling Thames Valley Police on 101 or through our online pages. Please quote reference 43230520986.

“Or if you do not wish to speak to the police you can contact Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.”


Thanks Thames Valley Police
