Police are appealing to the public to help locate the rightful owner of a valuable gold jewellery set, suspected of being stolen.
Around 1pm on Sunday November 8, 2020, two women attended a Logan Central pawnbroker and attempted to sell a stolen gold jewellery set consisting of: a necklace, two pairs of earrings and a bracelet.
The pawnbroker retained the jewellery at the time and the women left without payment.
Subsequent investigations led officers to execute a search warrant at an address on Watervale Street at Wilsonton Heights on Friday January 29, 2021, where they arrested a woman.
A 34-year-old Wilsonton Heights woman was charged with one count of attempted fraud and has subsequently been found guilty and fined $400 by the Toowoomba Magistrates Court.
Investigative attempts to locate the rightful owner of the jewellery have been unsuccessful.
Police urge anyone with information that could identify who owns the jewellery to come forward.
Please note: proof of ownership will be required in order to collect the jewellery items.
