A Land Rover was among items stolen after a gang of thieves threatened a woman with weapons while ransacking a house in Iver.

At around 7.30pm last Thursday (January 10), four men in a dark coloured Audi pulled up outside a property in Wellesley Avenue and broke in.

They threatened a woman in her 50s with weapons while her house was searched, and made off with the Land Rover, jewellery and a safe.

Police said the victim was not injured during the incident and the thugs fled the scene in the gold-coloured Land Rover and the Audi, which could be a hatchback.

The Land Rover was later recovered by officers.

The four men were all wearing face coverings. One of the men spoke with either an eastern European or Irish accent. No other descriptions have been provided.

Investigating officer Detective Constable Tom Swannell, of Force CID at Aylesbury, said: “I am appealing to anyone who was in the area of Wellesley Avenue on Thursday between 7pm and 8pm who believes that they may have witnessed this incident to contact us.

“This was a distressing incident for the residents, although it is being treated as an isolated occurrence.”
