Police have re-released CCTV images of men suspected of using a crowbar to smash their way into a house before stealing cash and jewellery.
They were captured on camera in Sycamore Road, Smethwick, on Saturday, July 13, sneaking through a side gate at the rear of the property before breaking in through the back door.
They struck at about 6.15pm and left a short time later in the direction of Bearwood.
CCTV footage also shows the thieves in conversation with two other men shortly before the burglary, one of whom knocked at the door of the property, and it is believed they also spoke to someone in a white car with a large spoiler on the back.
Investigating officer DC James Ashcroft said: “We are keen to hear from anyone who can identify the men in the CCTV images or who may have seen them acting suspiciously in the area of Sycamore Road on Saturday evening.
“The weather was very warm on that day so there may have been people outside who will have information that can help us trace the offenders.”
Anyone with information should contact police on 101, or information can be given anonymously to Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
