Robbers

From page A5 | March 08, 2013 |

EDITOR:

Our home in Gold Hill was robbed on Monday, in broad daylight, by someone who crowbarred open a metal-framed door. The villains seem to have left in a hurry, taking all of our friends’ jewelry and perhaps evaluating the home for later theft. Ours was just one of four homes in the area to be robbed recently.

I’m pretty sure the robbers were repeat offenders, accustomed to their work, but disappointed by their take. They probably don’t know that the jewelry they grabbed was left to a young couple by each of their deceased mothers. The young woman, a local school teacher, lost all the sentimental items from her mom, who passed away when she was 11; the young man lost multi-generational family treasures passed on by his mom, who died last year. Money can’t replace these things.

So robbers: Please man-up and mail the jewelry to the police station, or to the vineyard home you robbed. This stuff has no value for you at pawn or metal traders, but deep value to its owners.

And readers, if you have a lead, please call Deputy Ventura at 530-621-6600.
