POLICE in South Molton are hoping to prick a thief's conscience after a local couple were forced to cancel a dream holiday.
The couple, from the Three Hammers area of Worlington, had saved what police describe as a "substantial" amount of money to go on the once-in-a-lifetime trip abroad.
PC Neil O'Driscoll said they had saved the cash over a long period of time and only noticed the money had gone missing in June this year.
"The offence would have taken place between June 2009 and June 2010," said PC O'Driscoll.
