THE victim of a burglary has been unable to sleep since the break-in because of the mental anguish caused.
The woman says the upset of having an intruder in her house has been a massive blow.
Police in Wrexham say distinctive Indian gold and silver jewellery, including a necklace, bangles, ear rings, gold chain and silver anklets was stolen, together with cash.
The raid happened on Saturday afternoon in Fenwick Drive.
Yesterday morning the woman, who did not want to be named, said: “I have been so upset by this, it has affected all my family.
“I haven’t slept since because now I am always listening out at night, trying to hear if there are intruders in the house.
“It is a horrible feeling to find that someone has broken in and been all through your possessions.”
Police say the burglary took place sometime between 1pm and 7pm after a window was forced open.
“Our family had been out. When we returned it was absolutely horrible to find the break-in. Many of our possessions were strewn all over the place. We are still clearing up the mess now,” she said.
“I am just glad that no-one was at home when the burglary happened and all my family are safe.”
The woman said some of the items of jewellery taken were of great sentimental value.
She couldn’t place a financial estimate on their worth as the price of gold has shot up over the last couple of years.
North Wales Police spokesman Michael McGivern said officers are keen to hear from anyone who may have seen any suspicious behaviour in the Fenwick Drive area or in the grounds of the nearby Morgan Llwyd School on Saturday afternoon.
They also want to hear from anyone who is offered Indian designed jewellery.
Anybody with information is asked to call North Wales Police on 101 quoting crime reference number P021127.
