POLICE are appealing for the owners of stolen golf and fishing equipment to come forward.

Officers swooped on a house in the Throston area of Hartlepool and uncovered the trove of stolen goods.

Police are now hoping for their rightful owners to come forward and claim the goods.

The items include:

l A black Howson golf bag containing a variety of clubs such as a Bomber, Dunlop, Howson, and TaylorMade drivers;

l A black Donnay golf bag with a selection of Donnay clubs and a Ram club;

l One black Shakespeare Zeta fishing rod;

l One G-Tech COOL carbonium 700 rod which is covered in distinctive bright colours;

l A black Shadow Carp rod;

l A black Zensorflex rod;

l A variety of other black and dark-blue coloured fishing rods.

Pc Mark Raine, of Hartlepool Police, said: “The goods were found in a raid on a house on Friday and we believe they will have been taken from people’s sheds, garages, out-houses, or even their house.

“We are now appealing for the owners to come forward and claim them.

“The people they belong to will obviously be disappointed that they’ve been stolen and with Christmas coming up this might save them from having to go out and buy new ones,

“It would be great if they recognise any of the items from the picture or description in the Mail to come forward.”

Anyone who thinks the items may belong to them should contact Pc Simon Lowther, of the Dyke House Police Office, on (01642) 326326.
