The chain was one of several items taken in a break-in at a house on Shepard Home Road.
The chain first belonged to Richard’s grandfather, Ray Akins of Derry.
Richard said he discovered the house was broken into while he was away for a few days.
The chain was among other jewelry and a knife that were stolen.
Burglars also swiped jewelry and money from a residence on Great Oak Drive where a 22-year-old legally blind man was home alone and attacked by the intruders.
The bruising around his left eye caused by a punch to the face is fading as are the marks on his back left behind when one of the burglars struck him with an object.
“It’s amazing how many people don’t lock their doors. It’s sad that you can’t trust people anymore,” he said.
“These people going into houses go directly to where they think these (valuables) will be,” Burke said.
Burke said the burglars that hit Shepard Home Road came in through a window, but in the case of the Great Oak Drive burglary, Joe said the burglars broke in through a basement door with a dead bolt.
