(KMOV) - A $10,000 reward is being offered by a Chesterfield woman who lost family heirlooms in a burglary.
Sandy Wertz of Chesterfield lost some of the most important items in her life when burglars broke into her home on January 30.
Items that were kept inside a 150 pound safe. It seems the thieves just left with the safe along with a tv, computer and digital camera.
But it's the safe that Wertz really wants back. And she's offering a ten thousand dollar reward for the return of what is inside the safe. It's filled with heirlooms she says that have been handed down from deceased relatives. It includes things such as jewlery pieces and papers.
Police hope the thieves may just be frustrated with trying to open it and may just discard it. Or it may turn up at a pawn shop or someone may know someone who has it.
There's also an additional $2,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of the thieves.
Anyone with tips can call Chesterfield Police at 636 537-3000 or contact Sandy Wertz at email@example.com
