Cash and jewellery were taken in a burglary at a house in Somersham.
The incident took place last Thursday (December 15), in Hammond Way, with burglars smashing a patio door to gain access to the property.
The raid took place sometime between 4-6.45pm.
A spokesman for Cambridgeshire police said: “In this offence, offenders have smashed a rear patio door and have then turned a key on the inside of the door to open.
“An untidy search of the property has occurred and cash and jewellery have been taken. Residents are reminded that it is very important to remove keys from the inside of doors and windows as this can mean entry can be gained to houses more easily.”
