“The items have a lot of sentimental value to us and it has been very upsetting,” said Mrs Jones.
Their suspicions were aroused when they returned home and could not get their key in the front door as a key which had been hanging up inside had been put into the lock.
Mrs Jones said it was “very unnerving” for them and there were strange aspects to the burglary, including several items such as gold rings being left and also the search was “very neat and tidy.”
Intruders are thought to have got in through a back conservatory door between 3.30 and 7.45pm.
Mr and Mrs Jones had left the TV and lights on and two of their dogs were in the house.
The reward will be for information leading to the recovery of the goods and arrest and charge of offenders.
Anyone with information should contact Det Con Colin Aris at Dereham CID on 0845 4564567.
