AFL premiership medal stolen during Albert Park burglary

Port Philip Crime Investigation Unit detectives are investigating after an AFL premiership medal was stolen during a burglary at an Albert Park address.

The burglary occurred sometime between 12am on 14 April and 5.30pm on 26 April.

It is believed a 2016 AFL premiership medal, a 2016 AFL premiership Tissot watch, a World War 1 service identification tag and other items were stolen during the incident.

The property holds sentimental value to the victims who were not home at the time.

Investigators have released images of the unique items in the hope someone may recognise them and come forward.

The silver World War 1 service identification tag is engraved with ‘Sayers SA 1830’ on the front and ‘Nugget’ on the back.

The Tissot 1853 Chronographic Automatic watch, still inside its box, is engraved with ‘AFL 2016 Premiers’ on the back.
