A reward has tonight been offered for the return of one particular ring taken in the burglary at a Milford pensioner’s home this week.
A local group in the village has contacted Armagh I tonight and urged anyone with information to come forward to police.
They are also making a plea to those responsible to ‘do the right thing’ and return it directly – no questions asked.
A spokesperson for the group and a friend of the family told Armagh I the ring had belonged to the pensioner’s husband and she had kept it after laying him to rest on Monday.
He said: “A small sum of money and some jewellery was stolen from the house in the village and we are asking just that a small gold ring – with a red stone in it – is returned.
“It belonged to her late husband who had just a few days before passed away.
“It is of little value on the market but of great sentimental value to the lady.
“If anyone has found the ring or even if the robber/s have had a change of heart after hearing our plea, we beg you to hand it into Armagh police station or contact the following number 07860611179.
“If you contact the following number, no questions will be asked on how you found it or about who gave you the ring and a reward – donated from a local group in the village – will be offered to the person who returns the ring.
“Please, please, please, if anyone has found or knows where the ring is, please get in touch with us as the lady is heartbroken.
“We only hope they have a soul and imagine it being done to their loved ones.”
