Purloined jewelry dates back to 1905

Langley RCMP is once again seeking the public’s assistance in recovering some sentimental property, including  jewelry dating back more than 100 years, stolen during a home robbery in October.

A home, in the 4900 block of 232 Street, was broken into on the afternoon of Oct. 8.

The thief or thieves gained access through the back door, which had been pried open, said Langley RCMP.

Of particular note in the jewelry box was a woman’s 14 karat gold ring, approximately half inch wide with four rows of four diamonds each, a nine karat gold frame locket pendant with a screw top containing the photograph of a baby and a nine karat rose gold pendant with red, yellow and green stones on a fine chain.

Several of the jewelry pieces belonged to the victim’s great grandmother and date as far back as 1905, said police.

A stolen pink laptop contained all the family’s photos.

To make matters worse, the photographs were backed up on USB drives that were stolen as well.

If you have any information about the whereabouts of any of these items call Langley RCMP at 604-532-3200.
