The crooks gained entry to a property in The Avenue via a ground-floor window before rooting through all the rooms while the occupants were asleep.

A police spokesman confirmed they took a large amount of Asian gold jewellery, cash, a set of BMW car keys, Gucci handbag and beige furniture throw, before leaving the area in an unknown vehicle.

Police today released CCTV images following the raid on Monday, July 3, between 10.30pm and 10.45pm.
