WESTBURY - Police say they are searching for a thief who broke into a Westbury woman's car and stole irreplaceable pictures.

The photos were of Laura DeBeau's two sons, both of whom were killed in separate car accidents within two years of each other.

Police say someone broke into DeBeau's car last week and stole close to 1,000 pictures.  She says they were 30 years' worth of family photos that were stored in a metal box.

DeBeau is asking to have the pictures returned, no questions asked.  She says for her, not having the pictures is like losing her sons all over again.

Police are asking anyone with information to call detectives at 516-573-6355.
