The break-in happened during yesterday daytime after the male owner accidentally left the house keys in the front door the previous evening.

He left the house on Nelson Road on the Wednesday morning and returned in the evening to find his property had been burgled, with various electrical items and jewellery being stolen.

Investigating Officer Dc Andrea Ford said: “This man understands his mistake and regrets it terribly. Each week we remind people about the need to secure their homes as burglars are out there, committing crime.

“Hopefully this unfortunate burglary hammers the home message even more to everyone.”

A forensic examination of the scene was completed as were house-to-house enquiries.

Anyone with information in connection with this burglary is urged to contact detectives at Colchester police station on 101.
