Burglars who stole £200,000 worth of valuables from a historic home in Worcestershire even stole the kitchen sink.
Police have issued photographs of some of the items stolen from historic Earls Croome Court, near Upton-upon-Severn, some time between June 16 and July 3.
A police spokesman said: “The stolen items may well be offered for re-sale and we advise anyone who is offered anything similar to what we have identified to be extremely cautious and call us if at all suspicious that they may be stolen.”
They include three wooden fireplace surrounds, 11 internal oak doors and two oak panel doors, two toilets and matching basins and pedestals, washing machines and dryers and ornate iron gates – and even a kitchen sink.
Also taken were a double vanity unit, two shower heads, two towel rails and bath taps, a 30-light chandelier, blue and white carpet, metal stair-rods, copper pipework and a copper cylinder.
Rear gates were removed from their mountings but the cost of the damage is not yet known. The stainless steel sink was taken from the kitchen where the Aga cooker was moved and damaged but not stolen.
Anyone who recognises any of the stolen items – or who saw anything suspicious between the given times – is asked to contact police on 0300 300 3000, quoting 441S/030709.
