To who­ever took Steven Heller’s army medals from his home in Aotea.

You prob­a­bly knew tak­ing his things would cause him some pain.

But for the first time in more than 50 years, he was too dev­as­tated to at­tend an Anzac Day cer­e­mony.

That was a tra­di­tion he started with his grand­fa­ther when he was just a boy younger than you.

Those medals and that blazer would have looked fancy; some­thing you could sell to buy things you want.

But now you are stuck. Stuck with things that are prob­a­bly harder to sell and not worth as much money as you thought.

But the dam­age you’ve done has turned out to be far big­ger.

So here is a spe­cial chance to fix your mis­take. Take the medals to the po­lice sta­tion or leave them anony­mously at the Kapi-Mana News of­fice.

It will go a long way to mak­ing things right.
