Burglars who stole specialist knives from a house in High Melton are being hunted by police.
The thieves snatched the chef blades from an address on Melton Mill Lane after forcing their way in through the back door on Thursday, January 27.
The knives, made by “Shun”, were in a protective case.
The burglary took place between 6.45am and 5.30pm.
Acting Insp Amanda Hunter said: “We do not believe these knives have been taken to cause injury to anybody. They are quite distinctive and we believe whoever stole them will try to sell them on.”
Anyone with information should call police on 01142 202020.
