Reconstruction of millionaire home burglary to feature on Crimewatch

It has been reported that Crimewatch is to screen a reconstruction of an aggravated burglary incident which occurred at the property of John Caudwell, who founded the mobile phone company Phones4U, last November.

The BBC programme is set to show how the masked robbers broke out into the house in Eccleshall, Staffordshire, and attacked Mr Caudwell, before stealing a significant amount of jewellery and cash before fleeing the scene.

The businessman suffered an injury to his forehead, although his partner Claire and another woman who were also present at the home at the time, managed to escape unharmed.

Mr Caudwell and his partner are also expected to speak about the ordeal when the show is broadcast this Thursday evening.

Police have confirmed that a £50,000 reward has been offered by the insurance company for details which lead to the offenders being convicted and for the safe return of the stolen property.

The investigation is being led by Detective Chief Inspector Tim Martin of Staffordshire Police, who said:

“Our detailed investigation is on-going, and we have a dedicated team of detectives pursuing a number of lines of inquiry.

“We are appealing for people to contact us to give us any information they may have regarding the burglary and the jewellery that was stolen.”
