Police are investigating a devastating burglary at a Pakenham home, where an estimated $10,000-worth of property was stolen.
Detectives believe the unknown offenders gained access to the Union Avenue home via a window on the evening of Saturday 6 October, where they ransacked the house – searching draws, cupboards and bedrooms – and made off with around $10,000-worth of televisions, electronic equipment and jewellery.
The burglars also located the keys to a 2010 BMW parked in the driveway, which police later found torched in a truck parking area near Dore Road, off the Princes Highway.
No arrests have yet been made.
Anyone with information is urged to contact Cardinia CIU on 59452500 or Crime Stoppers.
