Police are appealing for anyone who saw or heard any suspicious people or vehicles in the Eversley Court area to contact them.
Detective Constable Kendra Bamber of Selby CID, said: “This brazen burglary took place in broad daylight and I’m appealing to anyone who can assist our investigation, to get in touch.
“It took place on a residential housing estate and the burglars would probably have made a noise as the broke the lock. If you recall any suspicious activity in the area, which you may not have thought significant at the time, I urge you to please get in touch.
“I also ask that anyone who finds any discarded personal documents including passports or birth certificates contacts us without delay.”
