Jan 2 2010 Huddersfield Daily Examiner
A SNEAK-IN burglar caused New Year misery in Golcar .
The intruder crept into a house on Dale View though an unlocked door between 5pm and 6.20pm on New Year’s Eve.
He found cash and car keys before driving off in the victim’s grey Peugeot 407.
The car – registration number KY05 HXS – remains missing.
Crimes where thieves raid homes to steal car keys are known as Hanoi burglaries. They find it easier to take the keys than try to get around high technology anti-theft devices on modern cars.
Five homes in the Holme Valley were hit in this way between December 17 and 23 and a total of eight vehicles were stolen.
