The callous thieves sneaked into the home on Centuria Way in Salendine Nook through a window before searching it while the residents were away between June 9 and 15.

A number of distinctive and precious items were taken, including a pearl and coral necklace, an aquamarine necklace, aquamarine earrings and items of ‘Filigree’ patterned jewellery. Police said engagement rings were also taken.
