Burglars Target Couple In Nineties
7:30am 10th July 2014
A Cornish couple in their nineties come home to find their bedrooms ransacked and thousands of pounds of jewellery stolen.
Police are investigating after a pane of glass was cut from the lounge window at Dobwalls.
They want to hear from anyone who might have seen something on 30th June.
The burglars escaped with thousands of pounds worth of jewellery including two 22ct gold rings, an 18ct ring and a 9ct gold ring, a silver bangle, a woman’s gold watch, a white gold ring with an iolite stone and several pairs of earrings.
Detective Sergeant Tim Wright, of Liskeard CID, said: “Two people who should be enjoying a happy and secure retirement have had to suffer the invasion of their home and the loss of heirlooms dear to their hearts. I would urge anyone who can help stop this happening to others to look into their own hearts and do what is right.”
Anyone with information should contact police on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111, quoting crime reference CR/086001/14.
Officers are investigating a second burglary at a home in Tremabe Park, Dobwalls, on the same day between 3pm and 8pm.
The offender entered the home through an unlocked front door and stole a £300 Samsung Galaxy 3 tablet from the kitchen. No search of the property was made.
