North Yorkshire Police is appealing for witnesses and information about a house burglary that occurred in Stokesley.

It happened on Glebe Road between 10am and 1pm on 14th May 2015 and involved the offender/s forcing entry through a locked door to the home of the elderly residents while they were out.

Whilst inside the offenders searched the premises and stole cash kept in one of the rooms

Sgt Nick Hill, of Stokesley Safer Neighbourhood Team, said “This is a terrible crime committed against elderly residents which has understandably left them very shaken. The victims have lost a large amount of their savings so it’s vital anyone with any information comes forward immediately.
