BURGLARS broke into a house in Denham while the elderly owners were in the living room unaware that their possessions were being stolen.
The victims, an 82-year-old man and 92-year-old woman, were in their house, in Oxford Road, when they heard a noise in the hallway at around 9.20pm on Wednesday December 28.
The man went to investigate and found a rear window had been forced open at their home.
A ring, handbag and a wallet containing a sum of cash had been stolen from a bedroom, along with bank cards and the couple’s bus passes.
Two people were seen leaving from the front of the property.

No further description is available.
