A woman is seeking the community’s help with regards to items stolen from her home at Ma’alauli Vailele, early Saturday morning.

Speaking to the Sunday Samoan yesterday, Lydia Lemalu, said the stolen items are worth between $8,000 to $10,000.

“All of the items were bought from the U.S. except for the Samsung Tablet and the L.T.E. Bluesky phone,” she said.

“It was early Friday probably morning during the heavy rain period that they broke into our home so sometime around 4 a.m. to 5:30 a.m."

“We woke up and we found the items missing and we found the window at the back of our house open."

“We contacted the Police and at the moment they are investigating the matter.”

In her Facebook post, she said most of these items contain some important stuff such as family memories.

“Our house was broken into last night (Friday night Saturday morning) and the following items were stolen,” she posted.

“Authorities have been notified, but stolen items hold sentimental value to us as they all contain family memories and important and personal information and we humbly ask for your assistance."

 “If anyone tries to sell you any of these items or know of anyone with these items please call any of the numbers below or PM me or Vui Fred Jahnke 7770699, 7621163, 7765665."
