Investigating officer, Detective Sergeant Mark Barnikel, said: “Following our investigations into a number of recent burglaries, we are advising residents in the Slough area to secure any Asian gold they may have as follows:

• Store all high value jewellery in a hidden safe.

• You should be discrete when wearing expensive jewellery out in public.

• Be cautious about showing any valuable items in pictures on social media.

• Ensure that your jewellery is adequately insured.

• Photograph each piece of jewellery being worn to prove that it belongs to you.
