OFFENDERS forced their way into a home and stole car keys before escaping with the owner’s vehicle.

The keys and grey BMW 3 Series estate car were taken from a home on Stubley Lane, at Dronfield Woodhouse, between 11.30pm, on Wednesday, August 15, and 6am, Thursday, August 16.

A police spokesman said; “The back door was forced open and car keys were snatched from the kitchen and the BMW was taken from the driveway.”

Police are advising people to keep their car keys out of sight to discourage burglars from opportunist car crimes.

Witnesses or anyone with information are urged to call Derbyshire Constabulary on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
