Burglars Steal Family's Jewellery In Cawthorne

Friday January 17 2014

AN elderly Cawthorne couple fell victim to thieves on Thursday evening.

The home, on St Julien’s Way, was empty when offenders smashed glass in a rear patio door to break in.

Burglars escaped with jewellery that had been handed down through several generations.

They searched the entire house before escaping with their loot.

The elderly couple who live at the house later returned to find they had fallen victim of burglars.

South Yorkshire Police launched Operation Lockdown in October to combat house burglary and vehicle crime.

So far, over 1,000 suspects have been arrested.

Its discusting! While ever the crimals get away with hardly any punishment they will still do it. If they get caught they will just do it again n again.

Its appalling this should happen in my former residence, Cawthorne seems to have its fair share of thieves. There is no place for them round there or anywhere else. They are not welcome.

How awful for this couple to have had their home violated by these low life thieves. When sentimental items are stolen its more difficult to get over I think, and I feel very sorry for this couple.
I'm with other commentators on this, the low life scum need their hands chopping off.
