BIKES and gardening equipment were stolen in a Sunderland raid.
The break-in happened between 8.30pm on Tuesday and 7am on Wednesday at an address in The Broadway.
The thieves went through a side gate and broke into a shed.
Two children’s bikes were stolen – a black BMX and a black and green bike – from the garden, and an orange Flymo strimmer and Flymo lawnmower were taken from the shed.
Officers are appealing for any witnesses to call 101.
