Chinese artefacts stolen from Fitzwilliam Museum, Cambridge


The items were taken during a break-in last Friday (13 April) and come from the museum’s permanent collections. Among the stolen objects there are six artefacts from the Ming dynasty, eight from the Qing dynasty, and a table screen from the Qianlong era, as well as an 18th century cup and vase.
Cambridgeshire Police said they have collected forensic evidence from the museum and that CCTV footage is being examined.
‘We have a team of detectives working hard to achieve these ends and we are working closely with the Fitzwilliam Museum, which is doing all it can to help our enquiries,’ said Detective Chief Superintendent Karen Daber, who is leading the investigation. ‘We are following up a number of enquiries but we also need the help of the public and would urge anyone with information that could help to call us.’
