Detectives in Malton are appealing for information about a dark coloured hatchback car following a burglary and the theft of two cars.
It occurred between 3am and 4am on Saturday 19 February 2011 from an address of Springhall Garth in Malton.
Following the burglary a black Audi A3 and white Volvo V50, which had been stolen, were seen travelling in a group with the hatchback. It is believed the hatchback car was in the area prior to the incident.
The cars were seen heading along Yorkersgate Road and then travelled along Old Malton Road to the A64 and then westbound
As well as the Audi and Volvo the thieves also stole computer and photographic equipment as well as jewellery.
Detective Sergeant Ian Fieldsend, of Malton CID, said:
“It is possible that the thieves may have spent some time in the area before they committed the burglary. I am appealing to anyone who saw a small dark coloured hatchback acting in a suspicious manner or in unusual circumstances in the Malton area or indeed potentially three vehicles travelling at speed just after 04:00hrs along the A64 to come forward as I would like to speak to them as soon as possible.
“I would also like to hear from anyone who can help to identify those responsible for this burglary or knows the current location of any of the vehicles."
“I would like to remind homeowners to keep keys out of view and in a secure place.”
