A young mum was left ‘terrified’ and feels ‘unsafe in her own home’ after thieves ransacked her property.
Becky, 25, who lives on Queen’s Drive in West Derby with her partner, one-year-old baby and three pugs, came home from a day of shopping in the city at around 9.45pm and noticed her van was not on the drive.
Once she opened her front door the fraud investigator noticed her dogs were running free around the house, when they’re usually behind a baby gate.
Becky said: “At first I thought the dogs had just broken the baby gate and trashed the house, but when I walked into the living room it was clear somebody had been there.
“They had looked everywhere, all the kitchen cupboards were open with stuff on the floor, the babies rooms had been trashed along with ours and even the nappy bin was emptied.
“It was terrifying, just going into every room and seeing it was completely ransacked.”
The mum-of-one called the police as soon as she realised what had happened.
As well as the van Becky noticed her engagement ring, Michael Kors smart watch, Gucci watch and Pandora bracelets had been stolen.
The spare key to her partners car was also taken along with spare pieces of a glass chandelier that’s hung in the house.
The 25-year-old said: “My mind has been going mad since it happened, imagine if I was home with the baby when they came in.
“It’s terrifying to think about. The night after it happened I pushed by bed in front of the bedroom door because I was so scared.
“I’m especially scared because of the car key they have taken, does that mean they plan on coming back? I’m petrified.”
A spokesperson from Merseyside Police said: “We can confirm that an investigation is ongoing following a burglary in West Derby yesterday, Wednesday, October 13.
“At around 9.45pm, a call was received from residents of a home on Queens Drive to report entry having been forced earlier in the day, and a Renault Master panel van and jewellery were stolen.
“Enquiries are ongoing.
“Anyone with information, or who captured anyone acting suspiciously in the area on CCTV, dashcam or doorbell cameras, is asked to contact us @MerPolCC or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 with reference 21000712918.”
