Police hunt burglars who stole Christmas presents


Police are hunting burglars who stole Christmas presents after breaking into a house in Renishaw.

A house on Hague Lane was broken into between noon and 4pm on Tuesday, December 23, with thieves gaining entry through the patio door.

Some Christmas presents as well as other items were stolen. They included a small dark grey suitcase which police believe was used to carry the stolen property.

Other items were a silver Apple iPod that was engraved with a name and phone number, an Acer laptop, a Sony laptop, a black Apple iPad and a gold chain with an engraved charm attached.

Neighbours saw two strangers in the area at around noon and police say they want to speak to the pair.

One of the men was in his early 20s, about 5ft 8ins tall, of slim build, with light brown short hair. He was wearing a black padded jacket and black bottoms.

Anyone who saw anything suspicious in the area or who has information that would help the police investigation should ring PC Shaun Chambers on 101 and quote crime number 54214/14.
