Thieves jailed for stealing £100,000 worth of jewelery from Goring


Thousands of pounds worth of stolen jewelery was seized after police tracked down a vehicle linked to a burglary.

Officials were alerted after it was reported that a bag of jewelry was stolen from the hallway of an address in Goering on Sunday June 26.

The owners had been to an antiques fair in Surrey earlier that day and believe they may have been traced back to Sussex.

At 5.30pm, a woman wearing dark clothing, a face mask and a baseball cap entered the driveway and took the bag containing the jewelry, estimated to be worth £100,000, while the car was unloaded.

She ran to a nearby vehicle, but the owner was able to record the details and called 999.

RPU (Roads Policing Unit) officers stopped the car as it was passing through Fittleworth, near Pulborough, and arrested the driver and a passenger on suspicion of theft.

PC John Bradshaw was among the officers who searched the vehicle. He said: “I opened the door to the back seat of the car and I couldn’t believe it when I saw the bag with all the jewelry was there.

“It was a great team effort to get to the vehicle so quickly so we could match the jewelry to its rightful owner.”

Maria Liliana Artunduaga Narvaez, 31, and Ramiro Hernandez-Islas, 50, both from Peckham Rye, London, have both been charged with burglary.

Hernandez-Islas was also charged with not driving under a license and driving without valid insurance.

They appeared at Lewes Crown Court on July 27, where they admitted the charges. They were both imprisoned for two years.

After the case, PC Bradshaw said: “Burglary can be a major concern for victims and in this case Narvaez and Hernandez-Islas have targeted a vulnerable victim.

“Thankfully, thanks to great teamwork, we caught them in the act and in court they had no choice but to plead guilty.

“We are pleased that these two perpetrators have been taken off our streets.” Thieves jailed for stealing £100,000 worth of jewelery from Goring
