Can you help this Jewish compass find a way home?

TOOWOOMBA police are hoping someone can identify a distinctive piece of jewellery seized during the arrest of a man at the weekend.

Detective Acting Senior Sergeant Tony Morris of the Toowoomba Criminal Investigation Branch said the gold-plated compass piece was found in the possession of a 30-year-old man arrested in East Toowoomba about 6.30pm Saturday.

"It was in the possession of a man charged with a burglary offence," Act Snr Sgt Morris said.

"We suspect that it was unlawfully obtained, but to date we haven't been able to ascertain where it comes from.

"It's a very distinctive piece and we are hoping someone might identify it or know who it belongs to."

The "Jerusalem Kosher Compass" is cylindrically shaped and has an open and shut top on which the word "Jerusalem" is engraved along with the Star of David.

Underneath the cap are a number of words including names of cities and places.

Anyone who could help police locate the owner of the jewellery is asked to contact Toowoomba CIB on 4631 6344 or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.

Act Snr Sgt Morris also took the opportunity to remind residents to remain vigilant and ensure their vehicles were locked at all times when left unattended and to also make sure homes have their windows and doors shut and locked.

"A lot of break-and-enters are opportunistic and it's important that people make sure cars are not left unlocked or homes left with open doors or windows," he said.
