He said: “As a small local company, we can’t stomach too many of these.

“These people should get a job quite simply.

“I would like to see a bigger police presence around here but someone can break into a property in 10 minutes.

Police believe that the raiders would have used a vehicle and are appealing for help.

“We are sure the offenders will have used a vehicle during this crime and it will have almost certainly been parked nearby, we are keen to speak to anyone who noticed a vehicle in the area around this time.

“We are keen to speak to anyone who witnessed this incident or anyone who noticed anything suspicious in the area around the times stated.”
