Shotgun Stolen In Coventry House Raid

A warning has been issued for people in Coventry to be on their guard after a replica shotgun was stolen during a burglary at a house in the city yesterday.

The break-in happened in the Everdon Road area of Holbrooks.

The burglar or burglars stole a replica double-barrelled shotgun, as well as some other items, including jewellery, some cash, a video recorder and a CD cassette player.

There is a youth who police would like to speak to in connection with their investigation.

He is white, aged about 14, 5ft 2ins, medium build with short hair.

It is believed the burglars gained entry to the house via the back of the property and also left the same way with the stolen goods.

Police at Stoney Stanton Road are appealing for any witnesses or anyone with information to call them on 024 7653 9020.

A police spokesman said:

"We are anxious to trace the offenders and the stolen property, especially the replica firearm.

"We would like to hear from anyone who knows where the property might be being sold or anyone who recognises the description of the youth."
