The victim is a 97-year-old woman who was away receiving care when the burglars struck at her home in The Mardens between Sunday and Monday, 25 and 26 February.

Relatives had been making daily checks at the property and found a kitchen window had been smashed to enable entry.

Detective Constable Adam Tidy said; “This has been a very upsetting experience for the elderly victim, and for her family who continue to care for her. The loss is not simply financial but has caused distress due to the sentimental family attatchment to so many of the items.

“If you can help, please contact us online or by calling 101, quoting serial 636 of 26/02.

“You can also contact the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.”
