A woman has been left devastated after Christmas presents she had bought for her family were stolen from the outhouse of her home on Grange Avenue in Stockton.
Police are appealing for information following the burglary, which happened sometime between 11pm on Saturday 28th November to 7am on Sunday 29th November.
The Christmas presents were ripped open first and then the most expensive ones were stolen.
The items taken include a Samsung Galaxy S4 Tablet, a children’s dark blue Adidas Tracksuit, a blue and white children’s Nike tracksuit, two cream and one red Jasper Conran dresses, children’s electronic toys and a Makita still saw.
It is possible that some of the stolen items have already been sold and police are appealing for anyone who has been offered the items or anyone who has any information regarding their whereabouts or those responsible to come forward by contacting
