He continued, “The community is disgusted by this intrusion into the home of an elderly pensioner, and I would ask that if anyone noticed any suspicious activity, vehicles or people in the area at the time to report it to the police.


“Crimes of this nature are abhorrent at any time, but to prey on the elderly in the community on Mother’s Day shows that there are no depths to which these criminals will sink in order to line their pockets.
