Hundreds of DVDs as well as electronic devices were stolen from a flat.
Police are appealing for witnesses after a burglars stole a flatscreen TV, an Amazon Kindle, a laptop, an Xbox console with its games, as well as an iPhone and a Louis Vuitton handbag from the Loughton flat on Thursday.
Cash and jewellery were also taken from the home in School House Gardens between 2.30pm and 7.20pm.
