HUNDREDS of pounds worth of foreign currency has been stolen from a house in Southam.

Police are appealing for information after $600 US Dollars (£417) and $500 Canadian Dollars (£269) were taken during the week commencing Wednesday March 16.

Approximately $10,000 of in now-defunct Hong Kong Dollars were also taken from the house in Millholme Close along with jewellery, electrical items and personal documents.

Police would particularly like to hear from foreign currency exchanges, as the Hong Kong Dollars – which were taken from a personal collection – are no longer valid. If still valid, the Hong Kong Dollars would be worth around £900.

Officers urge anyone who may come into contact with currency in the amounts listed above to contact them on 101.

A birth certificate and a marriage certificate were taken during the burglary and members of the public should report any suspicious documents to police.
