5 April 2015, 06:00

Police are looking into a burglary in Milton Keynes - where offenders took time to remove a tv - but left it behind in the hallway.

Between 7.30am and 5.30pm on Monday (30/3) offenders forced entry to a house in Thrupp Close, Castlethorpe through a rear conservatory window.

A television was removed from a downstairs wall and left behind in the hallway.  An iPhone 4, an iPhone 5, an Xbox One and five games, jewellery and cash were all stolen during the incident.

DC Samantha Reynolds, of the Milton Keynes burglary team, said:

"If you’re offered an iPhone for a very cheap price, please check the Immobilise website prior to purchasing. 

Immobilise is a national property register where people can register their valued belongings and assets for free.  It makes things easier for the Police to locate and identify stolen belongings and to, ultimately, return them to their rightful owners.

It will also give you peace of mind as the buyer that your new purchase hasn’t been stolen."

If you have any information about this incident, or saw anything out of the ordinary around the time of the offence, please contact the police immediately via 101.
