IMPERIAL BEACH, Calif. (KGTV) - An Imperial Beach man is making a plea to thieves after an "irreplaceable" envelope was stolen during a car break-in.

On Monday morning, Pace Putland walked out to his driveway on Elder Avenue and immediately his heart sank.

Missing from his truck: 5 Home Depot boxes filled with items belonging to his friend, 34, who recently died unexpectedly.  

Putland had helped pack his belongings for days and was planning on shipping the boxes to his friend's family that morning.  Among the missing items: an envelope filled with photos.  

Putland believes he accidentally left one of the doors unlocked.
