AN OLTON family were left devastated after returning from a funeral to find that burglars had ransacked their home.
Police were called after the bereaved relatives arrived back at their Wagon Lane address, to find the house had been broken into and the family car had been stolen.
Thieves smashed a door to get into the property and then searched the premises, stealing jewellery and cash before leaving the scene in the victim’s Honda Civic car.
The burglary is believed to have happened some time between 6.30-8.40pm last Friday (February 22).
Police are investigating the crime and urge anyone with information to call officers on 101, or speak to Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
