SAN DIEGO – An engaged couple said their Mission Hills home was ransacked Monday and all of the contents in their safe, including their wedding rings, were stolen.

Security video shows a man suspected of burglarizing a Mission Hills home.

Wedding planning for Mike Peterson and his fiancé Laura Moncreiff had a major setback Monday afternoon when their wedding rings were taken from their house, which is for sale.

Peterson had returned to his home on Titus Street to find his garage door had been pried open.

“I noticed that the sliding glass door was opened which was a little bit weird,” said Peterson.  “I walked in here, saw that all the drawers and dressers were pulled out and all of our stuff was on the floor.”

When Peterson walked into his bedroom, he found his safe busted open and emptied of its contents, containing rings and other family heirloom jewelry pieces.

“I started crying,” said Moncreiff, who was working when Peterson informed her.  “I was balling at work.  I couldn’t work any longer.  I had to leave.”

The engaged couple said since their home is on the market and several open houses have been held. The burglar could’ve compiled a hit list of their belongings and mapped out their property after being inside the home, they said.

Anyone with information about the incident was asked to call San Diego Police Department at 619-531-2000.

    People get robbed or their houses broken into every day. What makes these persons special? Maybe what makes them special is they are wealthy enough to own a home and get victimized to say those who get taken for everything they own and is special to them while they can only reside in a apartment. Stuff happens this isn’t news is publicity!

      You sound like you have some issues. You don’t know their situation and you don’t know that they are wealthy. What if her parents died in a car accident and left the house to their children, and all children live in the house together… and the rings that were stolen were from the deceased grandparents. Just think about your words before you go slandering people for faulty reasons, or for any reason at all. Maybe they reported this to the news stations in hopes of catching the jerk who robbed their home. Get a life.

    It’s devastating to have your home broken into, I know by experience… the news didn’t write an article about my case probably because I don’t live in Mission Hills! Maybe SDPD will care more about this case then they did mine & belongings will be recovered, good luck!

    This is a tragic event for the couple. I would never want my wedding rings to end up this way. I always wanted them to be safe and keep them out of harms way. I had them maid in silver coins that are already antique.
