Officers are appealing for information after a key safe was stolen from an address in Melton Mowbray
The incident happened in Garden Lane between 6.55pm on Tuesday 29 November and 6.35am the following day (Wednesday 30 November). The safe contained the deeds to the property and epaulettes belonging to the husband of the victim – a woman in her 90s.
DC Heather Cotton, the investigating officer, said: “I am particularly keen to speak to anyone who has information they think may be able to help.
“Did you see anyone in the area during these times? Did you notice anything suspicious or unusual about the way they were acting?
“Also, I’m appealing for anyone who has seen the safe, which may have been discarded, while out and about to get in touch as well as anyone locally to check their CCTV and doorbell footage. Anything you’re able to provide could assist my investigation.”
