Heartless Burglars have stolen cash from a childs' piggy bank and also took money from birthday cards during a break-in at a home in Chatteris.
Offenders took the money along with a number of medals, including a campaign medal from World War Two, a range of electrical goods including a Samsung computer, iPod, iPad, a Nintendo DS, DVD player, digital camera and mobile phones, from the home in New Road, Chatteris sometime overnight between March 30th / 31th.
PC Phil Richardson, investigating, said: "The fact the offenders took money from a child's piggy bank and also opened several birthday cards in order to steal money inside, is reprehensible.
"I would urge anyone who has any information about who is responsible or who has been offered any of the items for sale to call police. The house is located near a busy road and I would also appeal to any motorist who saw anything suspicious to get in touch."
Anyone with any information should call PC Richardson on 101 or Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555111 .
