The items, including golf clubs and clothing, were taken during burglaries on January 16 and January 17 and were found during a routine patrol in Saffron Walden.

The recovered items were found by PCSO James Graham who had been called to Railey Road following a report of a possibly stolen vehicle in the area.

A spokesman for Essex Police said: “As he got to the area two people made off and when the garage was searched a large number of golf equipment was found.

“A stolen white Citroen Nemo van was found while a white Audi A5 was also seized.

Our officers then executed a warrant at a house in Railey Road which led to a number of items of sportswear being seized.”

Police say they have been able to identify the owner of some of the golf clubs and have now returned them.

Chief Inspector Craig Carrington, district commander for Uttlesford and Braintree, said: “PCSO Graham was on patrol in Saffron Walden and able to respond quickly respond.

“As a result we have managed to reunite not only valuable but also sentimental golf clubs back to the rightful owner.

“Investigation work is ongoing and we will be looking to secure arrests in the near future.

“PCSO Graham is funded by Uttlesford District Council who we continue to work together with to make local communities safe. This is an excellent example of partnership in action.”

The owner of the golf clubs, who wishes to remain anonymous, said: “I am thrilled that the police have managed to get back a number of our stolen golf clubs. I would like to thank them for their efforts”.
