– Sgt Russ Higham
We are keen to recover the stolen property and trace the people responsible for this incident. All burglaries have a massive impact on the families involved, but this incident especially has made a dramatic impact on the family, due to the medication and family items taken. We encourage anyone with information to call 101.
– Woman from the home (who didn't want to be named)
One of the items taken during the burglary was an envelope titled ‘Race for Life’ which included sponsorship money raised for cancer research. This has been a distressing time for our family and we are saddened by the thought that someone could not only steal personal items and medication from us, but also steal money intended for charity.
