RAIDERS who burgled a property in Radford Road, Alvechurch, on Thursday (April 11) used a car stolen from Birmingham three days earlier.
Now police investigating the incident want to hear from anyone who saw the vehicle, which had the registration PN10 UEH and was taken from Sparkbrook at around 8pm.
A neighbour, who went to check on the house at 11.20am when the burglar alarm went off, saw the Mercedes parked on the drive.
One man was sat in the driver's seat and then a second was seen running from the house and jumping into the car. It was then driven off at speed along Weatheroak Hill towards Wythall.
The car was later recovered in Winstanley Road, Stechford, on Sunday (April 14).
Although nothing was taken from the house, the gate and UPVC door were both damaged.
Investigating officer, Det Con Tony Flannagan said: “We would like to hear from anyone who thinks they may have seen this car between April 8 and 11, particularly around the Sparkbrook, Alvechurch and Stechford areas.
“The car may have had false plates on it and therefore may not have been displaying the original registration number but it may have been noticeable as it has tape across the front near-side wing.”
Witnesses or anyone with any information about the car or the burglary should call DC Flannagan on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555111.
