Historic books believed to have been stolen


POLICE are seeking help from the public in Warrington and elsewhere to trace the owners of a collection of old books and other items which they believe have been stolen.
The books – and a pearl necklace – were found in an old brown suitcase police recovered as part of an investigation in Anglesey.
But they believe the property could have been stolen from anywhere between
The books, some of which are more than 100 years old, include the Bible and Alice in Wonderland. Some bear personal inscriptions dated between 1892 and 1894.
Investigating officer DC Jade Bennett said “During a search warrant in Holyhead an old brown suitcase was seized containing a number of books and a pearl necklace which we strongly believe to be stolen. Our enquiries have so far failed to identify their rightful owners.
“A number of the books have inscriptions to a ‘M.E. Taylor or Mary Elizabeth Taylor’ from what looks like E. Sawyer in 1892 and 1894. A further book bears the name David Cooke 1889. We’ve also recovered a (cultured) pearl necklace contained within a case marked Seibido.Co – Ikutasuji Kobe. If you recognise these items or think you may know the owners please contact Caernarfon CID.”
