Police are appealing for information relating to the burglary of an ornamental sword in Exmouth
Police are appealing for information relating to the burglary of an ornamental samurai sword in Exmouth.
Officers say offenders entered the property in Louisa Terrace at around 1am on Monday (September 11).
According to police, they escaped with the decorative stainless steel samurai sword, made famous by the ‘Kill Bill’ films, worth £80. A Playstation 4, valued at £230 and a £50 navy blue Saltrock jumper was also taken.
A Devon and Cornwall Police spokesman said: “The sword is described as around 45 centimetres long with a white beaded plastic handle and the emblem of a dragon on the blade close to the handle. It is in a black leather sheath.
“The sword is not believed to be substantial enough to cause any injury but it looks threatening.”
Officers investigating the burglary are appealing to anyone who may have seen or heard people acting suspiciously in the area of Louisa Terrace at the time of the offence.
They are also keen to hear from anyone who may have been offered the sword or the other items for sale.
Anyone who has information which could help is asked to email firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 101, quoting crime reference CR/078534/17.
