Tools, a bike, sound system, turbo trainer and computer monitor worth more than £2,500 were stolen in a Littleport burglary after the homeowner was woken up by footsteps outside.
In the early hours of Saturday (August 8), a resident in Yeomans Way, a woman in her 30s, was woken up by footsteps outside her home.
When the woman checked outside she saw a man trying to fit something into the boot of a blue Peugeot 206, driving away moments later.
Shortly after, a second man was seen riding her husband’s bike worth about £1,000, connected to a turbo trainer worth approximately £200, down the road.
The victims went downstairs to check their garage where they discovered tools worth about £1,000, a sound system worth £350 and a computer monitor had also been stolen.
Detectives are now appealing for the public’s help in identifying two men they would like to speak to in connection with the incident.
Detective Sergeant Ashley Ryan, of the force’s southern burglary team, said: “Burglary can have a devastating impact on victims, which is why tackling it is a priority for the force.
