The incident happened at around 11.30pm on 7 February 2020 when three men entered the property and stole a number of items including watches and electronical equipment including a Playstation, Alexa and a laptop.

Around 45-minutes later, two men entered the property and stole further items.

Officers have released this piece of CCTV footage to help identify the men in connection with the incidents. The footage shows the items being stolen as well as a discussion between the group to see what they can steal.

The first incident, the group were in and out of the house clutching their stolen equipment within 70-seconds.

Victim Tony Williams, 58, has been left distraught after his items were stolen . He said: “I’m still hurting to be honest. I’m distraught.

“I had just finished my night-shift working at a local pub and I pulled back onto my house and straight away I saw that the lights were on. I knew something wasn’t right.

“I got out my car and saw some young lads, I thought they have jumped over a neighbour’s fence or something. I went inside, and it was carnage inside. Things left all over the floor.

“I feel gutted that these young lads have come into my home.

“I really hope the footage helps, it’s quite clear video and you can obviously hear what they are saying, so many someone will recognise the accent.

“It’s sad, I’ve worked all my life and then you have so many items you’ve saved up for and personal items just taken off you.”

Detective Constable Natalia Montano is leading the investigation. She said: “This is some of the best CCTV footage we’ve had in a while to try and catch thieves.

“”You can hear their discussions and it’s hoped that because of the quality of the footage, we can find the offenders.

“They stole a number of high value items and obviously the victims are distraught. It’s our aim to find the culprits and try to get them some closure to this incident.

“I am urging members of the public to look at the video clips and contact police if they recognise the men or have any information in relation to the incident.”

If you recognise them please call 101, quoting incident number 22 of 8 February 2020.
