ANCHORAGE, Alaska -- An Anchorage family claims it has been violated and now feels hopeless, after burglars broke into their home and stole several pieces of family jewelry.
The stolen items include two brooches created by a family member in a World War II concentration camp and handed down for generations.
Police are asking for the public's help in locating the rare and precious pieces.
Police said the burglary happened late Friday or early Saturday at the family's Mountain View home.
"The victims were moving from a residence in Mountain View and when they arrived to the new residence to unpack items they discovered several of their items were missing," said Det. Sgt. Ron Tidler, APD.
