On Wednesday (17 May) between 1.45pm and 3.40pm, someone gained access to the back garden and forced entry to the property.
The offender then searched almost every room in the house and took a quantity of money and sentimental jewellery.
Detective Constable Sajid Saddique, investigating, said: “The area in which the burglary took place is quiet, and the community is close knit, so I am hopeful that someone may have witnessed the incident. If you were in the area at the time of the incident and you saw anything unusual, I would urge you to come forward.
“Burglary is a priority for Bedfordshire Police; we recognise how distressing it is for someone to enter your home uninvited. We are keen to find the person responsible and put a stop to this kind of behaviour.”
