AN AXMINSTER man who was burgled is offering a reward to anyone who can help police catch the thieves or to get his goods back.
The man, who does not wish to be named, had collectible items worth over �30,000 stolen overnight on Friday, July 10.
He has put up a �1,000 reward to anybody who helps recover most of the goods or identification that leads to prosecution of the offenders.
DC Steve Harrison, of Honiton CID, said: "I have attended the scene of the burglary and spoken with the victim, who is absolutely devastated at losing a collection which has taken many years to acquire.
