A BURGLAR sneaked into a house and stole bank cards and other items before trying to take money out at cash machines.

The burglary was discovered by homeowners in East Albany Road, Seaford, on July 4. It had happened during the previous night.

The burglar got in through an insecure door and stole an iPhone5 and a bag containing bank cards, keys and personal items.

The cards were later used to make withdrawal attempts at cash machines in Seaford and Newhaven, but were unsuccessful.
