POLICE ARE hunting callous burglars who broke into a Saddleworth home on Christmas Day and took their pick of family Christmas presents.
The incident, revealed in the latest crime figures by the neighbourhood policing unit for Saddleworth South, happened at a property in Manchester Road, Greenfield.
The offenders broke through a kitchen window during darkness and used a candle to check the living room where they selected items and used the householders’ keys to leave by the front door.
Meanwhile in another raid in Grove Road, Uppermill, offenders stole £800 from a woman’s handbag and in a further incident a woman gave chase after finding a young girl in her bedroom.
Elsewhere, there were half a dozen car and other vehicle thefts during the month of December.
