THIEVES stole the keys to a car – but even then were unable to start it.
The three intruders got into a house on Kings Lea in the Norristhorpe area of Liversedge at around 9.30pm on Sunday.
They stole keys to a car that was parked outside, but were unable to steal it due to the immobilser and drove off in a blue Renault Megane 225.
Part of this car’s registration number, YS05, was seen.
Police believe the car has links to the Leeds area and may have also been used alongside a silver Ford Mondeo.
One of the men is African Caribbean and aged between 20 and 30.
Another is Asian, aged around 24 and slim with a moustache and possibly a goatee beard.
He wore a waist-length jacket split into three horizontal sections – grey at the bottom, white across the chest and dark grey at the top.
He had a hood pulled up around his face and wore grey gloves and dark coloured trousers.
