Maldon: Thieves target cancer patient's home
3:00pm Wednesday 7th August 2013 in News
Thieves stole jewellery from a cancer patient’s home after she had left for her first holiday since her diagnosis.
Maureen Clifford was diagnosed with breast cancer on her 76th birthday last October and underwent surgery and radiotherapy.
She and husband John booked a long weekend near Lowestoft and left at about 11am on Friday only for their neighbour to discover the break-in that evening at their home in Redshank Drive, Heybridge.
The thieves had even stolen a pillowcase from the bed to carry their haul.
