The Pittsfield Police Department is asking for the community's help in finding a suspect, or suspects, in connection with the breaking and entering of the home of a recently deceased resident.

"The individual(s) stole only a few items," the Pittsfield Police said in a statement. "(An) antique scale, which had been in the family for many generations, will hopefully catch the eye of one of our followers. Any information about this incident, the whereabouts of this priceless heirloom or any other incident, please contact the Pittsfield Police Dept.

"Anonymous tips can be submitted through our TIP411 app."

The photo of the antique scale is shown below. If you have any information, please contact the Pittsfield Police.
