Area family advocates for return of stolen antique grandfather clock :: exploreClarion.com
BOROUGH OF COOPERSTOWN, Pa. (EYT) – A local family advocates for the return of an antique grandfather clock that was recently stolen from the Cooperstown borough.
Franklin-based State Police responded to a location on Maple Lane Drive, near Mill Street, in the borough of Cooperstown, Venango County, at around 8:41 a.m. on Tuesday, October 19, for a report of items stolen from a storage unit.
Police said a grandfather clock with a silver dial, valued at $ 300.00, and a meat grinder, valued at $ 30.00, were stolen.
The victims of the theft also contacted exploreClarion.com and provided additional details.
“The clock has been in the Brink family for many years and was given to us after my husband’s grandparents passed away,” said Carole Brink.
According to Brink, the clock is around 100 years old and had been in the victim’s family since the 1950s.
“My husband’s grandfather was a veteran. A man of honor and integrity. Someone who would never hurt someone who left an empty place in our hearts when they passed away. The clock was part of his life, and it meant the world to my husband to own something his grandfather was proud of. It breaks my heart that it is somewhere, maybe someone’s house or maybe a pawnshop.
Brink said they still hope for the safe return of the clock that means so much to their family.
“Please give back our family heritage. We realize people make mistakes, so as long as we can get the clock back, we’d be willing to drop all charges.
“If you’re the person who stole it from our storage unit and you’re reading this, please do the right thing and return it.” “
Anyone with information relating to this incident is urged to contact Franklin-based State Police at 814-676-6596.
