A MT ELIZA man alerted by a silent alarm was able to watch on his phone from another location as two men wearing balaclavas tried to force the front door of his house, 5.33am, Saturday 27 July.
Detective Senior Sergeant Al Paxton, of Somerville CIU, said the man called police who rushed to the Fulton Road house as the men sped off towards Nepean Highway in a grey 2000 Ford sedan. They were not able to apprehend them.
Police canvassed houses in the street and found a neighbour had been robbed of cash and jewellery, another neighbour’s garage had been broken into and alcohol stolen and two cars opened and searched in the driveway next door.
Anyone with information about these crimes is urged to call Crime Stoppers 1800 333 000.
