Brentwood: Five guns stolen from a house in Mountnessing
Burglars have stolen five guns worth �1,700 after a break-in in Mountnessing.
It happened at a house in Church Crescent between 10.15am and 3.30pm on Friday, May 11.
Essex Police said the burglars gained entry through a window and stole two shotguns; a rare Tyson air rifle; a 22 Single Shot Bolt Action gun; and a Nico Sterling with a 4-12 magnification telescopic sight.
Officers said witnesses reported seeing two men in a white van around the time of the burglary, and banging was thought to have been heard from the house at about 12.30pm.
Investigating officer, DC Sam Boyd, said: “We are keen to speak to a taxi driver who was seen in the area at around 12.30pm, as he could hold information vital to our investigation.
You may also want to watch:
“We also understand that a scrap collector could also have been in the area around 10am and may have seen the suspects.
“The air rifle that was stolen is very distinctive, and we want to hear from anyone that is approached to buy it or may have seen it offered for sale. If you are approached to also buy two shotguns under suspicious circumstances, we want to hear from you.”
