On Friday, August 3, police recovered a number of items during the search of a house at Laurel Avenue in Forest Hall.

The recovered property includes:
A black bag full of tools
A blue and black Mills bag with tools inside
Black Helios binoculars, a Fujifilm Finepix silver camera and a black camera bag
A blue Bosch drill set

A set of distinctive plates, each with an image on
DKNY sunglasses with a white DKNY case
Electrical items including a camcorder, MP3 player and sat nav

DI Neil Brotherton, North Tyneside CID, said: "Following the search of a house in Forest Hall we recovered a number of items and we're trying to trace the original owners to establish where they have come from.
"Some of these are very distinctive, such as a commemorative medal for trade union service, which is obviously very personal as it's engraved with someone's name. There's also a large set of plates which have a variety of pictures on the front.
"Someone will recognise the items and we've released images of some of them. Anyone who recognises them should get in touch with police."
Anyone with information about the items is asked to contact police on 101 ext 69191, or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
Five people were arrested during the house search. A man aged 33 was charged with handling stolen goods, while men aged 30, 21 and 20 were arrested on suspicion of theft and bailed pending further enquiries.
