Rock manager Sharon Osbourne made an emotional plea on British TV on Tuesday (14DEC04) for the public to come forward with any information about her multi-million pound burglary last month (NOV04).

Sharon and husband Ozzy were sleeping when a slender man, wearing a ski mask and dark clothes, broke into their country mansion in Chalfont St Peter, Buckinghamshire in the middle of the night and stole $3.8 million (GBP2 million) worth of jewellery on 22 November (04).

On BBC show CRIMEWATCH last night, Sharon appealed for information and offered a $190,000 (GBP100,000) reward to anyone who could lead police to the culprit.

As mock replicas of the items stolen were shown on TV, Sharon said, "He took my wedding rings, my engagement ring, a diamond necklace, a large sapphire ring... All the stuff is totally irreplaceable. It's very, very sentimental.

"I'm angry and scared. I hope this will spur somebody on to say something. Tell the truth. Turn him in."
