TWO Jaguar cars worth around �30,000 were stolen from a driveway after intruders stole the ignition keys from the house in Guyhirn.
The owners were at work when thieves smashed a window at the back of the house in High Road and took the keys from a key rack.
They also made off with cash and an ornamental pig from the garden.
Owner David Middleton returned home at midday last Wednesday (May 27) and discovered the theft. He had left the house at about 5am.

He said: "I came home and obviously saw that the cars were not on the driveway. I saw that the glass had been smashed and that someone had been in the house. It is horrible to think that someone has been in your home."
Mr Middleton had owned the X-type, registration M666 DMM for two years and the XJ6, registration BD56 JOA for just six months. Both cars are black.

A Jaguar enthusiast, Mr Middleton described the XJ6 as a "stunning" car and owning it was like a dream come true. He said he used the XJ6 only on special occasions but frequently used the X-type.
DC Sarah Sleaford, who is investigating, said: "This burglary took place in broad daylight and I would urge anyone who saw anything suspicious in the area to contact the police.
"I would particularly like to hear from anyone who has seen the Jaguars being driven since this break-in took place."
Mr Middleton has lived in his Guyhirn home for three years and had a vehicle stolen from the driveway just three weeks after moving in. More recently his partner had a catalytic convertor stolen from her 4x4.
He said the life-size ornamental pig was a kind sometimes found in a butcher's shop.
