Indians Told To Avoid Keeping Jewelry at Home

Thames Valley Police, one of the largest police departments in the UK, is advising Indian families to avoid keeping high value jewelry at home after a spate of robberies targeting the community in the counties of Berkshire, Buckinghamshire and Oxfordshire.

Steve Smith, crime prevention and reduction manager, said: “Ideally, we would prefer for people not to keep high value gold at home given what we are experiencing, not only in areas of our Force but nationally, due to the value of Asian gold and its purity.

“However, we understand that it may not always be possible to deposit it in banks or that some families may not wish to leave their valuables in someone else’s possession.

“In such circumstances therefore, we are strongly advising people to invest in a safe, which must comply with certain standards and be approved by your home-insurer. Without this, you may lose out on thousands of pounds if you are burgled.”
