POLICE are calling on people to check whether their missing jewellery has been found in a city store.

Around 9am on Tuesday, April 2, Perth Detectives executed a search warrant at a second-hand jewellery store in an arcade off Hay Street in Perth.

During the search warrant, a large number of rings, necklaces, bracelets, earrings, watches and charms were seized by police.

Around 900 items of jewellery to the value of over $200,000 were located, which police believe to be stolen.

An extendable baton was also found at the premises.

Perth Detectives have located over 900 stolen items at a second-hand jewellery store off Hay Street.

A subsequent search of a residential address in Thornlie linked to the business uncovered further items and paperwork related to the business.

A 36-year-old Thornlie man has been charged with laundering property/money from proceeds of major offence and possession of a prohibited weapon.

He is due to appear in Perth Magistrates Court on Thursday, May 2.

The second-hand dealer licence held by the man has been cancelled.

The investigation is ongoing, with booklets prepared with images of seized items for the public to view online.

The booklets can also be viewed at 24-hour police stations in Perth, Joondalup, Cannington, Fremantle, Midland, Mirrabooka, Armadale and Mandurah.
