Fam­ily heart­bro­ken over sun­nies theft

NewsMail - - NEWS - CRYS­TAL JONES crys­tal.jones@news-mail.com.au

A BUND­ABERG fam­ily is call­ing for the per­son who took a pair of sun­glasses dur­ing a high school for­mal photo shoot to do the right thing and give them back.

Marika Kerr said her son was hav­ing his photo taken at the Bund­aberg Train Sta­tion on Mon­day afternoon when some­one took the sun­glasses.

The ac­ces­sory was more than just eye­wear for the fam­ily, they ac­tu­ally be­longed to the teen’s great grand­fa­ther.

“To the per­son who stole my son’s sun­glasses from the Bund­aberg Train Sta­tion while he was get­ting a prom photo taken, firstly, I would like to say you have ab­so­lutely bro­ken his and my hearts with your self­ish dis­gust­ing act,” Ms Kerr said.

“Those sun­glasses be­longed to his late great-grand­fa­ther and he es­pe­cially wore them to­day so he had his great-gran­dad with him in some way for his spe­cial day.

“Se­condly, he knows what you look like and the train sta­tion is look­ing at CCTV footage also.”

Ms Kerr said she found it hard to be­lieve that any­one could do such a thing.

“I can­not be­lieve that some peo­ple think it’s ok to just take what­ever they want with­out giv­ing it any thought,” she said.

“Not only have you ru­ined my son’s spe­cial day, but you’ve taken a piece of mem­o­ra­bilia from my fam­ily

that can­not be re­placed.

“If you know who has them, I would ap­pre­ci­ate them back. They may only be a pair of sun­nies to any­one else but they mean so much to us.”

Ms Kerr said the fam­ily had been left dev­as­tated and the sun­glasses rep­re­sented a spe­cial bond be­tween her son and his late great-grand­fa­ther.

She said the sun­glasses had no value other than the sen­ti­ment they held for her whole fam­ily.

To re­turn the sun­glasses, phone 4153 8522.

They may only be a pair of sun­nies to any­one else but they mean so much to us.
