A widower is devastated after burglars stole his late wife’s engagement ring.
The 81-year-old’s home in Kisby Avenue, Godmanchester, was broken into on Monday, November 25, when thieves stole a number of items of jewellery, including the ring.
The burglary is being linked with three others in the town which happened in the space of just 10 hours.
Two properties in Crowhill and another in Tudor Road were targeted between 8.30am and 6pm.
The thieves made off with jewellery, cash and an iPad.
Officers want to find two men who were seen in the area. One was described as 30, 5ft 11in-tall, very slim with light brown hair. He was wearing a lumberjack-style shirt with mustard brown check, bright blue trousers and had a distinctive long stride.
The other was about 20 and was wearing grey jogging bottoms and a beanie-style woollen hat.
