A reward is being offered for the return of a stolen laptop following a burglary in a Harborough district village.
The break-in took place sometime between 12pm and 3pm on Saturday, October 19, in Medbourne Road, Hallaton, police said today.
A number of items were stolen including an Apple Mac Pro laptop, a Raymond Weil watch, assorted jewellery and a TAG Heuer Formula 1 men’s watch.
The owner is offering a reward for any information which leads to the arrest and conviction of those responsible and the return of his stolen property. The laptop contains an unfinished novel he was working on.
Det ConPeter Lockey, the investigating officer, said: “The victim has been working on his novel for some time and it’s all saved on his laptop computer which was stolen.
“He is very keen to get it back and is offering a reward for its return and any information which leads to the arrest of those responsible.
“Two men were seen around 5pm on the day walking from the direction of Sutton Bassett into Harborough and one was wearing a hi-visibility jacket. We would appeal to anyone who saw these men or the men themselves to contact us so we can eliminate them from our enquiries.
