Police are appealing for information after a house was broken into while the newly married occupants were on their honeymoon.

The burglary happened in Woodham Drive in Sunderland between 1pm on Tuesday, December 12 and 11.30am on Wednesday, December 13.

Burglars broke into the house and stole wedding gifts given to the couple along with Christmas presents.

Officers are carrying out enquiries and are appealing for anyone with information to come forward.

Among the items stolen were two Michael Kors watches, an Armani watch, a Tiffany bracelet, Tiffany earrings, an All Saints burnt orange suede bag, five or six Jo Malone gits sets (in yellow and black striped gift bags) and a
boxed vacuum.

Members of the public offered similar items for sale, including second hand shops or online, are urged to get in contact with police.

Detective Sergeant Steve Wallace, who is dedicated to investigating burglaries, said: “It is devastating to think that a couple who were on their honeymoon have had their home broken into and gifts given to them to celebrate their wedding stolen while they were away and I would urge anyone who has any information that can help to get in contact with us.”

Anyone with information should contact Northumbria Police on 101 quoting reference 365 131217 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
