More than 800 objects - including guns, knives and jewellery - have been found dumped in a pond in West Sussex.
Police believe they may have been stolen or used by criminals.
The discovery was made by a dog walker in Longcroft Park on the edge of Worthing,
The weapons and personal belongings are now being examined to establish where they came from. Malcolm Shaw reports.
Police are hoping to reunite burglary victims with their possessions after finding hundreds hidden in a pond in Worthing.
Officers from Sussex Police's specialist search unit have recovered more than 850 items that are believed to have been stolen in burglaries in the county.
Among the items recovered have been necklaces, brooches, rings and trinkets.
There are also handguns, a machete and knives in the haul that are being examined to see if they are linked to any other crimes.
The search was carried out after a dog that left its owner and jumped into the pond in Whitebeam Wood, Durrington, emerged with a jacket and some cufflinks on 23 July.
The recovered items have been cleaned and examined but officers have been unable to identify who many of them belong to.
If they have been stolen, they can be returned to their owners and officers may be given more evidence that could help catch and prosecute those responsible for taking them.
