The suspects were using a large old style vehicle. This has been described as a five door, very dark blue/black vehicle with grey primer over the rear passenger wheel arch. It was a similar size/shape to an old Ford Granada of an early 1990 or Cavalier.
Following the burglary the suspects drove off towards Nettleden Road.
Assistant Investigator Lisa Walsh is investigating and said: “I would appeal to anyone who was in the area and saw this vehicle prior to, or following the burglary to get in touch. Whilst it was late on a Sunday night I am confident someone must have seen this vehicle or the two suspects.”
