Pawn Shop Helps Widower Rediscover Precious Memories Of His Wife

Widower Dave Lacey's day was made recently when he discovered that his stolen camera had turned up at a local pawn store.

The camera, stolen from his house 12 months previously, contained special memories of Dave’s wife Erica and he thought it was gone forever.

‘I had written it off that it was gone and stolen forever,’ Dave from Santa Ana, California told KABC-TV.

Dave knew the camera was his because of the unique strap made by his wife, “She was a super strong woman, super talented.”

Erica had been diagnosed with cancer shortly before her and Dave had married and the camera contained images of her funeral, among other photos.

Police discovered a pawn receipt linked to the camera, at the house of a man who was suspected of carrying out another burglary.
