Thieves steal military badges, jewellery and underwear

MILITARY service badges, heirloom watches and a full drawer of underpants are among the items stolen from a Kara View Crt home on Thursday.

Between 2.52pm and 3.28pm, two men entered the home and left with watches, a coin collection and small box containing memorabilia from the homeowners' careers in the Australian Defence Force.

Police are looking for two men who burgled a Kara View Court home on Thursday afternoon.

"It was stuff that was totally and utterly valueless for them but have great sentimental value for us," homeowner Meg Humrich said.

The items included badges from the owners' tour of duty in East Timor and her service during the Sydney Olympics.

The thieves also stole iPads and phones.

"These pervos stole all of my husband's underwear, socks and running gear," the homeowner said.

"He had some good Under Armour undies and Calvin Klein undies, and they only left him two pairs," Mrs Humrich said.

Police believe this Holden Astra was used in an attempted armed hold up on Wednesday night.

Clear CCTV footage shows the men drive up to the house in a white Holden Astra with stolen licence plates bearing the registration 846YQL

Investigators believe it was the same car used in an attempted armed holdup on Wednesday night at The Ridge Shoppingworld.

Detective Acting Senior Sergeant Brian Collins said the plates were registered to a Mermaid Beach vehicle.
