During the reported break-in, it’s said that a Ford Kuga, Apple iMac, HP laptop, cards and money were taken.

One of the bank cards was then used in shops in Mexborough and Goldthorpe, added the spokeswoman.

Sheffield officers are investigating two similar incidents which occurred overnight between July 22 and 23.

One alleged victim in Albany Road, Stocksbridge, reported their property had been broken in to at some point between 11pm and 6.30am, said the spokeswoman.
