Daughter angry after burglars take her late mum’s jewellery
Annemarie Stubbs, with Harley, three, Abbie, eight, Izabel, six, and husband Dave, who are devastatated after burglars stole her mother’s ring and two necklaces, from their home in York
A MOTHER-OF-THREE from has described how she feels sickened after thieves stole her mother’s ring.
Annmarie Stubbs, 34, of Huntington, came home from a family trip to Scarborough last Saturday to find her house had been burgled.
Her mum’s ring was stolen along with the Christening necklaces of two of her children, Harley and Izabel who are aged three and six respectively. Mrs Stubbs also has an older daughter, Abbie, aged eight.
Mrs Stubbs’ mum, Karen Sadler, died in hospital in February this year just 11 weeks after doctors diagnosed her with advanced lung cancer.
Mrs Stubbs said: “It makes me feel sick because I have only just lost her. She wore that ring right up until the day she died.
“She got it when she was 21 and my dad literally took it off her hand an hour after she died. I feel horrible.”
A total of £350 in cash was also taken which Mrs Stubbs and her husband David, 30, had saved to take the children on holiday to Blackpool later this year.
Mrs Stubbs, who is currently a full-time mum, said the thieves entered through the backdoor which she thinks was left open by one of the children.
There was no sign of forced entry and nothing was taken other than the jewellery and the money.
Mrs Stubbs said: “I’m not bothered about the money, our friends and family have clubbed together to cover that, I just want the ring back.”
PC Oliver Ingham who is dealing with the case said that no arrests had been made. He said: “Clearly the ring had great sentimental value for the owner.
“I urge anyone with any information or who may have been offered the ring for sale to contact the police immediately.”
North Yorkshire Police can be contacted on 101, or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
