Jewellery was stolen from a village home before the alarm scared off burglars who had smashed through a rear patio door.
They broke into the home in Lower End, Thornborough, between 12.30pm and 12.45pm yesterday, Tuesday.
Once inside, they ransacked the master bedroom but when the alarm sounded they escaped with the jewellery.
Anyone with any information about the burglary or saw any suspicious activity in the area should contact PC Emma Francis on 101.
