|When Found?||December 2019|
|Do you think it was STOLEN ??||Yes|
Greensborough police are asking for public assistance to reunite a number of war medals with their rightful owner after the precious medallions were found during the arrest of a man for stolen property offences more than a year ago.
Police say they’ve conducted extensive searches to find the owner of the medals but have had no luck so far.
The medals were discovered following the arrest of a man in Melbourne for property-related matters back in December 2019.
“The silver medal is a British First World War Medal with service number ‘53697’ and name ‘T.K Chesters’ engraved on the bottom,” Victoria Police said in a statement.
“The gold medal is a 1953 Queen Elizabeth II Coronation Medal issued by the states of Jersey.
“Police have conducted extensive searches to reunite the sentimental property with its owner but have been unsuccessful so far.”
Investigators today released the images of the medals in the hope someone may recognise them and come forward with relevant documentation to claim them.
Anyone with information or who may know the owner of the medals is urged to contact Greensborough Police Station on 8432 0200.
