An elderly couple were burgled by masked intruders while they were at home.

Police are appealing for information after three men broke into the home of the couple in Peach’s Close, Harrold, on Sunday (April 17).

At around 11.30pm the offenders, described as wearing dark clothing with their faces covered, carried out a search of the property while the vulnerable occupants were home. They made off with cash and bank cards.

PC Matt Bird, investigating, said: “This incident has greatly impacted upon the victims. Those responsible are callous individuals who show blatant disregard to the effect they have on their victims and need to be brought to justice”.

Anyone who saw any suspicious people or vehicles in the area is encouraged to call police on 101 quoting reference JH/15526/2016 or call Crimestoppers anonymously, on 0800 555111.
