police lights new

At least two offenders are on the run after homeowners at Bagdad caught them breaking in on Wednesday night.

Police swooped on the East Bagdad Road property, sending out a night-vision drone and later finding a car possibly used by the thieves, a blue Subaru Liberty sedan, in the area.

The offenders drove the vehicle off into the bush and then fled on foot. 

The car's been seized for forensics but there was no further sign of the burglars despite roadblocks and foot patrols overnight. 

Anyonymous tip-offs can be provided to Crimestoppers on 1800 333 000.
