Police appeal after sentimental photos stolen in Charford burglary
4:22pm Wednesday 28th August 2013 in Local
A LAPTOP with treasured photographs of a family member no longer alive was among items stolen in a Charford burglary.
The house in Mercia Close was burgled while the family was away for a weekend, with thousands of pounds of property taken in the incident.
Thieves gained entry by smashing a downstairs window at some point between 1.30pm on Friday, August 23, and 2.20pm on Monday, August 26.
Among the items taken were electrical goods, including laptops, consoles, iphones, ipads, an Xbox and computer games, as well as some medical drugs and cash.
A West Mercia Police spokesman said: “The victim is desperate to retrieve the pictures which understandably have considerable sentimental value.
“We are appealing for any information which might help us trace the offenders and the stolen property.”
Police are asking witnesses or anyone who spotted suspicious activity in the Mercia Close area during that weekend, to call them on 101.
Alternatively information can be given anonymously to Crimestoppers by calling 0800 555 111.
