A devastated nurse has appealed directly to the heartless burglars who swiped 'all she had left' of her grandmother.

A Rowley Regis resident has told how her grandmother's priceless jewellery was stolen after crooks smashed through her patio door, raided her home and took anything they could get their hands on in the evening of Tuesday, January 9.

The 25-year-old victim, who lives on Buckingham Road, but did not wish to be named appealed to the raiders: "Return my Nan's jewellery and keep the rest.



"If not, good luck in life, because what goes around, comes around.

"That jewellery was all I had left of her."

The critical care nurse, who is planning to get married in the next couple of years, added that she had planned to wear the jewellery on her wedding day so her Nan could be with her in spirit.

The burglary took place between the hours of 4.30pm - 6.30pm.

She explained: "My partner pulled onto the drive to find all our curtains had been drawn.

"He walked in and found they had turned our house upside down - baskets all over the floor, a smashed double French door, glass and mud everywhere.


"And upstairs, they had opened every drawer, every wardrobe, clothes, underwear, paperwork - thrown everywhere.

"They had taken all my Nan's jewellery which was handed down to me when I was 13, now I’m left with just a photo and memories.

"I had it in a box under clothes and other boxes, but they had emptied every single box."

Jewellery she received for her 21st birthday, a work phone, SatNav and cash they had in the house was also stolen.

"We are well and truly heartbroken. We can replace all the materialistic items but my Nan's jewellery is irreplaceable."

And the couple no longer feel safe in their own home and are even considering selling the house and moving elsewhere.

"I feel like I’m being watched and we are both horrified that someone has entered our home they we have worked so hard for. We're considering moving to a completely different area."

West Midlands Police officers are asking anyone with information on the burglary to come forward as the investigation continues.

In a statement the police said: "Police were alerted to a burglary at a house in Buckingham Road in Rowley Regis just before 7pm on Tuesday 9 January.

"It is believed cash and jewellery were stolen after access was gained from the back of the property.

"Investigations continue and anyone with information is asked to call police on 101, quoting 20SW/7503U/18."
