POLICE are warning residents to make sure their homes are secure and wallets and keys stored out of sight following a recent burglary in Langford.

Police from Biggleswade are investigating the burglary at Ivel Close, two weeks ago last Saturday when a burglar managed to gain access to the rear of the property through the back garden and got into the house through the kitchen window.

The intruder took the home owner's wallet and keys of his dark blue 07 registered VW Golf GTI and drove off in the vehicle.

The house owner slept through the incident and was unaware anything had happened until he woke up on Sunday morning.

Pc Russell Thompson, from Biggleswade police, who is investigating the incident, issued the security warning to home owners, saying: "It is vital people keep their personal possessions and in particular car keys, out of sight.

"When people come home they should not leave them on display but lock them away or hide them carefully.
