Bedfordshire Police are urging witnesses to come forward after a burglary took place at a property in Truro Gardens, Luton on Monday, March 3.
The incident happened between 5pm and 5.30pm when the residents were out and offenders forced their way in to the house through the kitchen door.
One of the residents returned home to find a messy search had been conducted throughout the home and saw three men running from the scene.
The offenders got in to a dark grey BMW three series that belonged to the residents and drove away along the A6, from Luton towards the M1.
Shortly after a member of the public reported that a Honda Civic and a BMW had parked at a roundabout on the A6 and approximately four men were removing the number plates from two vehicles. Both vehicles had then driven off towards Streatley.
Officers searched the area and recovered two safes that had been taken from the Truro Gardens burglary and the broken number plates.
