Police appealing for information
POLICE are appealing for information after a burglary at an Ormskirk home last week.
On Wednesday (10th of October) at some time between 12pm and 4pm, the property on High Lane was broken into while the occupants were out.
It would appear that the offenders have broken in through the rear of the house and have searched the whole house before leaving with a number of personal items, including two items which have particular sentimental value to the victims.
The first was a gents rotary gold watch engraved with a message that the victim’s father, who has passed away, was given on his retirement from his company.
The second item was a medal from the First World War which has a picture of an angel holding a torch and is also engraved with his father’s details.
Also taken from the house was a black telescope, a Toshiba laptop, a travel alarm clock in a brown leather case, a ladies gold bracelet with cat charm and a ladies gold chain necklace.
Sergeant Steve Monk from Skelmersdale CID said, "Although all are valuable items, the watch and medal in particular are absolutely priceless to the victim as they belong to his father who has passed away and so if anyone has any information that they think could help or even lead to the recovery of these items then I would urge them to get in touch as soon as possible.”
Information can be passed to Sgt Steve Monk in Skelmersdale CID by calling 101 or alternatively call the independent charity, Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
