POLICE are appealing for information following a burglary at a property where 24 pieces of valuable model train equipment was stolen.

The incident took place in The Street, Pakenham, some time between Monday March 19 and Wednesday March 21.

Offenders managed to open a hatch and climb into the shed, exiting via a double glazed window.

The owner is offering a cash reward for the safe return of the undamaged highly collectable models - which range from around nine inches to four feet long. Most of the models are made by LGB, one is made by Bachmann. An old Toshiba laptop was also stolen.

Anyone with any information on the above incident should call PCSO Jon Burke, quoting crime number BR/12/180 on 101, or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
