A BURGLAR who snuck into an Oxford home through a kitchen window stole bank cards, cash, vouchers and a back door key.

The crime happened in Chestnut Avenue in Headington on Thursday, sometime between midnight and 6am.

Police said several failed attempts were made to use the cards in shops and to withdraw cash.

The force has now appealed for witnesses to the original break-in on Thursday.

Anyone with information is asked to call 101.
