Woman robbed inside own home, loses wedding band, engagement ring

LAWRENCEBURG, Ky. (WKYT) - She says they took her money, her medicine, and some gifts her late husband gave her.

Police say two men forced their way inside a house of Jean Drive in Lawrenceburg Friday morning. Multiple law enforcement agencies spent the day trying to find them.

Police in Lawrenceburg are still searching for the two men that robbed Rena Reed. Reed says two men came into her house demanding pills. When they took her stash of prescription medication, they started eyeing her rings.

"He took my engagement ring and my wedding band," said Reed.

Those bands had been on Reed's fingers for 56 years, put there first by her late husband.

"I can't replace those," she remarked, "these people just simply, they don't care. They didn't mean anything to anybody but me."

Emergency crews took Reed to the hospital to get checked out after the home invasion, and an Anderson County Deputy Sheriff pulled over a suspicious vehicle shortly after. The two men inside it got out and started running. They have yet to be found.

Lawrenceburg Police told WKYT Friday night they aren't positive the men in the vehicle are the same that robbed Reed.
