Police are offering a "no questions asked" amnesty for the return of a grieving Wagga mother's irreplaceable baby pictures.
Inspector Adrian Telfer said on Thursday that a woman who lost her baby in 2014 to cancer had come forward to police after a laptop and USB thumbdrive were stolen from her Campbell Place home last month.
"The victim lost her 14-month-old boy in 2014. The laptop with all her photos was stolen and the thumbdrive they were backed up to has been stolen as well," Inspector Telfer said.
"She is absolutely devastated. This is something that is going to impact the rest of her life, not having any of these memories."
Inspector Telfer said police were appealing to member of the public for help as the Hewlett-Packard laptop might have been sold since the break-in.
"We're appealing for the public to help the police and help a poor lady who lives in our community," he said.
"On the 12th of April, come time overnight, a house was broken into on Campbell Place in central Wagga was broken into.
"Some jewelry was stolen but more importantly there was some electronic taken. We are looking for a Hewlett Packard computer and a thumbdrive.
"The photos of this young boy were on the laptop and unfortunately they were backup up on the thumbdrive that was also stolen.
"We have a poor lady who lives in this town who has lost all her photos of her child, so we are appealing to anyone who has knowledge of where this laptop or thumbdrive is to please return in."
Two Fitbit fitness trackers and an Apple iPhone 7 smartphone were also stolen in the burglary.
"There will be no questions asked if you come to the front of (Wagga Police Station) and deliver this property back. All we want to do is return that property to the rightful owner," Inspector Telfer said.
The home occupants were away from the home between 5pm on April 12 and 9am on April 13 when the burglary was thought to have occurred.
"We have exhausted all our inquiries in trying to find out who was responsible," Inspector Telfer said.
"We are just appealing to help this lady out with the hardship that she is going through having lost her baby boy.
"That was almost five years ago but the loss of this property is significant to her.
"The offender may still have this property, it may have been sold, it may be at a pawnbroker, but we are trying to find this property immediately."
