Burglary on Mainwaring Road, Lincoln

We are appealing for information

We are appealing for information following a burglary on Mainwaring Road in Lincoln.

At around 8pm on 8 February, the victim reported sounds of banging and smashing coming from the downstairs area of his home address. After making his way to the landing, the victim reported seeing a male in his 30s on the stairs before he fled the scene.

It is believed the offender gained access by smashing a window at the property. Several items of property, including three square brass carriage clocks, were stolen.

The full list of items stolen include:

  • One large solid silver plate
  • Two large solid silver piece trays (business car size)
  • Two large solid silver-lidded boxes
  • Three square brass carriage clocks
  • One serpentine shaped brass carriage clock
  • One larger brass carriage clock

If you have seen the items on sale at a pawn shop or elsewhere, we would like to hear from you. We would also like to hear from anyone who may have been offered these items so we can bring the offender to justice and potentially reunite the victim with their much-loved property.

If you have any information, no matter how small, please get in touch.
