Police in the East Midlands want to trace the owner of jewellery worth more than £25,000 which is believed to have been stolen.

The matching silver and diamond bracelet, ring and two earrings were seized when a man and woman were arrested in Nottinghamshire in October.

Police said the arrests were made under the Proceeds of Crime Act.

It is thought the items may have been stolen in Derbyshire, Nottinghamshire, Leicestershire or Lincolnshire.

Police arrested the 22-year-old woman and 28-year-old man on 1 October last year.

It followed the search of a BMW by officers, who discovered the jewellery, as well as a silver Breitling watch - later found to have been stolen during a robbery at a jewellers in Nottingham.

The pair, who are from Nottinghamshire but have connections to Cromford in Derbyshire, have been released on bail pending further inquires.

Anyone who recognises the jewellery, worth £26,850, should contact Derbyshire Police.
