THIEVES are thought to have returned to a house several times after finding keys on their first visit.
On their second visit they made off with a green china dinner service with gravy boat and tureens, a set of lead crystal wine glasses, a set of silver plated egg cups and some loose change. They even made off with some medicines.
The break-ins occurred between January 2 and 4 at a house in Princess Street, Sutton Bridge.
"Offenders tried to force entry to the rear door of the premises," said a police spokesman. "This proved to be unsuccessful. However, a hole was then made in the wooden frame and fortunately for the offenders they found the keys hanging in the lock.
