Thames Valley Police has released some images of various war medals which were stolen during a burglary in Cholsey.
Officers confirmed that between 11.15am and 2.45pm on Wednesday (10/7), glass at the front of a residential dwelling in Reading Road was smashed and suspects then entered the house.
According to Thames Valley Police, the distinctive German war medals, including those pictured, were stolen from the house as well as various other items including alcohol, jewellery and credit cards.
Officers investigating the burglary have confirmed that the victim’s credit cards were used later in the day between 14:45 hours and 16:30 hours in Tilehurst.
