Officers investigating the burglary would like to hear from anyone who saw any suspicious activity in the area or has been offered any of the stolen items for sale.
Anyone with information is asked to call 101 quoting incident 421 of 13 January.
We are currently running an anti-burglary campaign and would encourage the public to look at installing a 'WIDE' combination of security devices as they can provide 49 times more protection against residential burglary with entry compared to having no devices installed.
A 'WIDE' combination includes; Window locks, Internal lights on sensors, Double or door deadbolts and External lights on sensors.
