Car stolen from grieving family in Olton

March 12, 2013, 3:45 pm

A woman whose car was stolen while she was at a family funeral has spoken of the distress it has caused her family and appealed for information to help find those responsible.

Carrie Williams had left her car at a family address in Wagon Lane, Olton while she attended the funeral of her father-in-law.

When the recently bereaved family retuned, they found the house had been broken into by thieves, who searched the house, stealing jewellery and cash as well as Carries car- a distinctive Honda Civic.

Officers from Solihull police are investigating the break-in and are appealing for anyone with information to contact them on 101.

Carrie said: “It was awful; we got back to the house following the funeral to find it had been broken into. The family were distressed enough and to come home to this was awful. We urge anyone who has information to contact local police.”

Carries vehicle, a vivid blue Honda Civic is a special edition model, of which only 500 exist. It has extra decorative trims and unusually a tow-bar at the rear and is valued around £10,000.

The thieves also stole jewellery worth £2,000 and around £1,500 in cash.

The burglary is believed to have happened sometime between 6.30pm and 8.40pm on 22 February.

Police are investigating the crime and urge anyone with information to contact local police by dialling 101, or speak to Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
