Weapons stolen by burglars during break-ins
A HAUL of weapons - including a Samurai sword and a medieval mace - were stolen by burglars.
The thieves took the weapons from two homes - in Langdon HIlls and Vange - and detectives probing the break-ins have now released images of the stolen gear.
The first break-in happened on Friday March 1 in Vange Hill Drive, Vange. Crooks broke in and - as well as steailng an Xbox and laptop - the thieves stole a Beretta XX-Treme air gun. The air weapon was in a blue case containing two canisters of Co2, a suppressor, a scope and a tin of flat-head metal air pellets.
The next day, on Saturday March 2, crooks broke into Motehill in Langdon Hills.
They stole a TV, a laptop, a “Tanto” Samurai sword and a decorative metal mace.
