SAN DIEGO (KGTV) - A heartbroken woman is making a plea for tips after hundreds of family heirlooms were stolen out of her Allied Gardens home.
Last Friday afternoon, Mary Anne Madruga got a wrenching call from her husband.
"Just a moment of disbelief and shock. Am I really hearing what I think I'm hearing?" said Madruga.
During a two-and-a-half-hour window when nobody was home, somebody had pried open a back window and made off with hundreds of pieces of jewelry, silver and coins, including more than a hundred pieces of jewelry belonging to her mother, who died of cancer.
