Police are appealing for witnesses after a burglar broke into a Garlinge home while the residents slept.
Officers were called to the property in Birds Avenue at 4.42am yesterday (February 11).
It was reported that shortly beforehand, the residents had woken to find an unknown man in the house, who then ran out.
Enquiries are ongoing to confirm exactly what was stolen but it is believed a set of vehicle keys, a wallet and a computer tablet were among items taken.
The back doors were also reported damaged during the burglary.
Police carried out a search of the area, and recovered a red Vauxhall Corsa car in Brook Avenue which has been seized while enquiries continue.
Anyone with information is asked to call Kent Police on 01843 222289 quoting 11-0157.
