BURGLARS stole more than £1,000 of items from a home office in the night.

A number of expensive items were taken from the house in Stoke Road, Gosport.

Police are appealing for witnesses to the raid, which happened between 9.45pm and 10.30pm on October 29. Details have only just been revealed.

No signs of forced entry were found and it is not known how the thieves got into the house.

They stole a cash box with £200 inside and a Samsung 47in black flat screen television worth between £600 and £800 pounds

They also took a black Hewlett Packard laptop which is worth around £200.

The laptop has no serial numbers and shows a screensaver of islands when it is opened.

A blue Acer Intel N455 netbook, which is worth £209 and has a 10.1in screen, was also stolen.

PC Sam Gee said: ‘It would appear that the property taken has been targeted specifically as there were items that would be the norm for a burglar to take, but have been left behind.

‘If anyone heard or saw any suspicious persons or vehicles in that area, or persons removing a television and laptops from a premises at that time, please contact the priority crime team at Gosport police station.’
