Detectives are appealing for witnesses to come forward after a car and jewellery were stolen during a burglary in Maulden last week.
The burglary happened at a property in Silsoe Road, Maulden, sometime between 9am on Tuesday, August 27 and 8pm the following day while the residents were away on holiday.
A friend visited to check on the property but realised that a small window at the front of the house had been opened and lights had been turned on.
It appears that the offenders had carried out a search of the bedrooms in the house and stolen a number of items of jewellery along with the key to a Volvo XC90 which was also missing.
Detective Constable Lynn Adams, who is investigating the incident, is keen to hear from anyone who may have seen anything suspicious in the area during the dates mentioned or from anyone who may have seen the vehicle being driven away.
If you have information relating to this incident, contact DC Adams, in confidence, on 01234 275142, the non-emergency 101 number, or text information to 07786 200011.
