Tony Roberts, of East CID, said: "These burglaries have resulted in items of a significant value being stolen.

"As part of our ongoing investigation, we need to speak to the individuals in the CCTV stills who we believe can assist us with our enquiries.

"I am aware that these stolen items are being sold online at a vastly reduced price to their actual value.

"I would ask that people refrain from buying these stolen goods and instead go to reputable sellers."
