Huntingdon: Pensioner Left Devastated After Late Wife's Ring Stolen

A pensioner has been left devastated after burglars stole his late wife's engagement ring.

The 82-year-old widower is desperate to get back the ring which was one of a number stolen from his home in Kisby Avenue, Godmanchester, on Monday (November 25th).

Police are linking the break-in with three others that happened in the village in the space of just 10 hours.

A home was also targeted in Tudor Road while two were broken into in Crowhill between 8.30am and 6pm. Jewellery, cash and an iPad were taken during the break-ins.

Police want to trace two men seen in the area. The first is described as 30, 5'11'', very slim with light brown hair. He was wearing a lumberjack-style shirt with a mustard yellow and brown check, bright blue trousers and had a distinctive long stride.

The other man was about 20 and was wearing grey jogging bottoms and a beanie-style woollen hat.

PC Jo Grant said: "We are very keen to trace these men and I would urge anyone who recognises the descriptions to call police.

"The ring stolen in the Kisby Avenue burglary is incredibly special to the victim and I would urge anyone who is offered it for sale, or knows of its whereabouts, to call police."

Cambridgeshire Constabulary is focusing on burglary throughout November as part of its award-winning Get Closer campaign. 

Anyone with any information should call PC Grant on 101 or Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555111.
