The house, in the old town area of Scarborough, was burgled while the owners were away between 9 and 12 March.

Penguins at Scarborough's Sea Life Centre hit the headlines last month when they were given a course of anti-depressants to cheer them up after several weeks of wet weather.
Now their owners have the best sign yet that spring has made the penguins happier - they have found a freshly-laid egg.
“Our prayers were finally answered and the arrival of spring has certainly worked its magic on our penguin family,” said Lyndsey Crawford, a supervisor at the centre.
“There is no surer sign that they are feeling chipper again than the resumption of breeding activity.”
The egg was laid by a female called Pinky and is the first this spring, although there are signs that another female, called Piglet, may be about to produce the second.
If the eggs are viable it should be about 40 days before the centre hears the patter of tiny penguin feet.

Resident penguins at Scarborough's Sea-life centre are being fed anti-depressents with their fish to cheer them up.
They have been diagnosed with depression - and believe it or not it's all down to our weather.
Penguins may be used to the cold, but it seems they really don't like the wind and rain they are been subjected to here this winter.
Seabirds can be affected by wet-weather blues too…as staff at Scarborough Sea Life centre have discovered.
The centre’s resident penguins are so cheesed off by the relentless rain and wind, they have all been put on a course of anti-depressants.
It is the first time the dozen Humboldt penguins have needed such medication since they were severely stressed by a break-in at the attraction almost three years ago.
“Humboldt’s in the wild on the coast of Peru and Chile can be subjected to some pretty wild extremes of weather,” said display curator Lyndsey Crawford.
“What they don’t get though is weeks of almost daily downpours and high winds,” she added.
“After the first week our birds were just a bit subdued, but after over a month now, they are thoroughly fed-up and miserable, much like the rest of us.”
"Misery can lower the body’s natural defences in penguins even more easily than in humans, and that is why the penguins have been prescribed ‘uppers’ to try and head off any more serious symptoms.
“They’re doing the trick so far, but we are all praying for the weather to change and at least a few successive days of sunshine to give the penguins the tonic they really need.
