property stolen from an elderly woman while she was in her own home has been found dumped in Hightown.
The pensioner was at home in Purlwell Lane, Batley, at 9.15pm last Friday when four or five men broke in and stole jewellery and cash.
Some of the items were found half an hour later near the Shears Inn in Halifax Road.
A police spokesman said: “Any crime against an elderly person is appalling, no matter what time of the year.”
Anyone with information can call Dewsbury CID on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
