Sentimental memories stolen from SUV near Scripps Pier in La Jolla

SAN DIEGO - A family who had sentimental items stolen out of their SUV near Scripps Pier in La Jolla is asking for the public's help in catching the thief.

On Saturday, Dave Wong says someone stole $5,000 worth of electronics, including several cameras and SD cards with photos of his daughter's birth and father's funeral.

"That stuff is irreplaceable," said Wong. "That's the last time we're ever going to see my dad. My daughter's pictures … you know you can't go back in time and take pictures of the day she was born."

Wong says he does not care if he ever gets the cameras back. He is most concerned about the SD cards.

"You know, if you can at least return the SD cards with all those pictures … all the other stuff can be replaced," said Wong.

Wong urges whoever stole the items to drop the SD cards off at the police department or 10News, no questions asked.

He added some of his photos were backed up but not all of them because his computer crashed.
