A family has been left devastated after thieves stole a number of sentimental items from their home in Peterborough.
The home in Berkeley Road, Netherton, was broken into on Friday evening (September 4) between 7.30pm and 10pm.
Offenders forced open a back door before ransacking the living room and bedrooms, taking sentimental jewellery from a jewellery box in the master bedroom.
A gift bag with a birthday card, £150 in cash and 500 Australian dollars, also caught the eye of the thieves, who took the money and left the bag and card behind.
Detective Constable Leigh Mann said: “I am appealing to anyone who may have been offered the jewellery for sale to get in touch – these items hold a lot of sentiment to the victims and they are deeply upset by what has happened.”
Anyone with information is asked to call police on 101 or Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
