A MORECAMBE couple’s Las Vegas wedding plans have been left in ruins after thieves broke into their home and stole a safe containing their wedding rings, passports and 3,000 American dollars.

Police are appealing for information after the couple, who live in Hampsfell Drive, were burgled sometime between 1pm on Friday September 7 and 6pm on Sunday September 9.

The couple are due to get married in Las Vegas in less than four weeks’ time and police believe their home had been deliberately targeted.

PC Mark Nelson from Lancaster Target Team said: “It would appear that the offenders have known what they were looking for as they have left the TV, computer console and laptop untouched in the front room.

“This crime has obviously affected the couple’s wedding plans and they are devastated.

“They are desperate to recover their property, particularly their rings and passports.

“I would urge anybody that witnessed anything suspicious in the area around the time of the offence or knows anything that could assist with our investigation to get in touch.”

Anyone with any information should call Lancashire Police on 101.
