Priceless pics stolen in raid.

TWO elderly brothers were left badly shaken and distraught after a burglar raided their Dudley home and stole 'priceless' family photos.

The housebound victims, aged 87 and 90, were confronted by a masked man who demanded they handed over cash after he entered the house at around 8.30pm on Sunday March 17.

One of the OAPs was pushed to the floor as the raider ransacked their belongings as he searched rooms in the house, which is off The Broadway.

He ran away after stealing a wooden police truncheon, given to the family as a gift just after World War II in 1946. Call Dudley CID on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555111.
