Thames Valley Police is appealing for information after a burglary in which musical instruments were stolen from a house last week.

Overnight between 11.45pm on Tuesday (8/5) and 7.30am on Wednesday (9/5), offenders broke into a house in Colesbourne Drive, Downhead Park, and stole a left handed Yamaha electric guitar, which has double pick ups and plastic wood effect, and a left handed Crafter acoustic guitar in light and dark brown wood.

Detective Constable Sam Reynolds, from Milton Keynes police station, said: “These guitars are quite distinctive so I am appealing for anyone who knows of their whereabouts or comes into possession of them to come forward.”

Anyone with information should call the Thames Valley Police 24-hour non-emergency number 101 and ask to speak to Det Con Reynolds.
