Woman burgled while at funeral

A pensioner was burgled while attending a funeral.

Police are now appealing for witnesses to catch the person who targeted the 75-year-old woman in Southampton.

The victim returned home after the funeral to find a quantity of cash she was saving for a holiday and some jewellery had been taken.

Among the items taken were several of great sentimental value as they belonged to her deceased husband and her father.

Her engagement and wedding rings were also stolen and the burglar emptied moneyboxes belonging to her grandchildren, stealing the money from those as well.

The burglar broke into the flat in Bugle Street sometime between 1pm and 4.30pm on March 1.

A neighbour’s property was also targeted but it’s not known yet if anything has been taken from there.
