POLICE are still investigating the Christmas Day theft of a safe containing money and family items from a home in Walloon.

Widow Carol Baker was celebrating the day with family at Kholo when thieves broke into her home, and used her late husband's wheelchair to carry the heavy box into a getaway vehicle.

Mrs Baker's husband Graham died from diabetes in February, 2012, and money he'd left behind to help Mrs Baker pay bills was in the safe. There were also the house deeds and a diamond ring

The theft occurred between midday and 8pm.

Anyone with information that could assist police should phone Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
