Police are appealing for witnesses after a number of army medals were stolen from a home in Weymouth.
As well as the medals being stolen, a purple mountain bike, laptop, satellite navigation system and cash were also stolen from the property.
Constable Andy Dickinson, of Weymouth Police said, "This callous act has occurred while the owner was away on holiday, and he has returned to find a quantity of personal items stolen as well as war medals of great sentimental value.
"These medals were given to the victim for good service in Northern Ireland, Iraq and Afghanistan, as well as Golden and Diamond Jubilee medals and long service awards."
The incident happened at a house in Verne Road in the Rodwell area of Weymouth, between the 15th and 26th of September.
