BURGLARS made off with a substantial haul after breaking into a Ponteland house.
The thieves entered the empty home in Middle Drive through a rear French window and caused damage inside.
They are thought to have made off in an unknown vehicle with numerous items, including a Hewlett Packard laptop, Sony and JVC televisions, a silver digital Casio camera and a Pandora bracelet.
They also took two ladies’ Tag Heuer watches. One was silver and encrusted with 12 diamonds in the face, with a stainless steel bracelet, though the battery was not working at the time. The other was gold with an off-white face.
The burglary took place on Friday, between 11.30am and 12.30pm.
