BURGLARS stole sentimental items including jewellery belonging to the victim’s late wife after removing a window pane to break into the home.
The property, in Northern Common, Dronfield Woodhouse, was targeted by burglars who removed the beading and glass from a rear window to break into the property.
They then searched the house and made off with a range of items including jewellery and a men’s gold signet ring with the initials ‘FM’ inscribed on it.
Golf clubs and a quantity of both sterling and foreign cash were also among the items taken in the offence.
The burglary, which took place during the day on Tuesday, February 19, was discovered after the homeowner returned from visiting friends and found the door to the property already unlocked.
He went inside and saw that kitchen drawers had been untidily searched and then spotted the missing double glazing pane.
Witnesses or anyone with information should call police on 101 or Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
