A BURGLAR removed a window from a house then stole a BMW from a couple’s drive while they slept.

The thief struck at Whitland Avenue, Markland Hill, between 1am and 3am on Tuesday.

They took the ground floor living room window from the frame, went into the house and took the keys from a coffee table and drove off in the BMW 3 series worth £15,000. The break in was discovered by the husband, aged 52, when he woke up at 3am.

Anyone with information should contact the police on 101 or Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
