Jess Berrill and her daughter Aaliyah Booth returnedto their Church Street home after their day, to find thieves had stolen from the bedroom, the lounge room and the dining room.

Unfortunately for Ms Berrill what the thieves did take meant much more to her than any material item they left behind.

A box containing about 15 small video tapes were taken along with the camera they were recorded on.

Seemingly opportunistic thieves stole precious video recordings of her nine-year-old daughter’s birth and childhood.

“It has my daughter being born, her growing up and just before my grandfather died,” she said.

“There is nine year of my daughter’s life on those cameras.

“The box was precious too.

“It was a wooden box with a carved celtic cross on it.

“That is unique in itself.

“You can’t replace that stuff.”

Ms Berrill, a social worker, said the items stolen had surprised and caught her off guard.

“It’s weird the stuff they took,” she said.

“Wouldn’t it make sense to grab my computer?

“The stuff they took is irreplaceable.”

Ms Berrill said she did not care about the camera she just wanted the memories returned.

She said the thieves also stole some of her jewellery.

“They took the bracelet I got when I was born,” she said.

“They took the huge crystal I bought when I got a new job recently.”

Aaliyah Booth said she was surprised the thieves did not take her guitar or something of more value.

“Those tapes might have poppy on them,” she said.

Ms Berrill said the window in the bathroom was where the offenders entered the house.

Bendigo Police confirmed the break in happened between 8am and 7pm.

If you saw anything in the area on Monday Police urge you to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
