Heartless Glasgow thieves steal little boy’s piggy bank in brazen raid on Penilee’s house

Heartless thieves have been filmed breaking into a Glasgow house and stealing ‘everything’ – including money from a little boy’s piggy bank.

The group struck at Barshaw Street property in the Penilee area around 6pm on Monday February 14.

The footage – captured on a neighbors doorbell camera – shows three men arriving in a black Audi and pulling into the driveway, the Daily Record reports.

It is understood that they smashed the kitchen window to get into the house, before ransacking all the belongings. They are then seen walking on the side of the house.

The trio fled with cash, sentimental items, jewelery and other items belonging to the family – who are now terrified of being in their own home

The neighbor who shared the footage on social media did so by warning residents to be vigilant.

She wrote: “I am posting this as a warning to all in Penilee, Cardonald and surrounding areas. Unfortunately there is a disgusting gang of burglars brazenly terrorizing our neighborhood.

“On Monday evening, my neighbors directly across from us saw their house ransacked by three men dressed in dark clothes who use a dark Audi vehicle for travel when they commit their sickening crimes.

“This disgusting apology for men waited for the family to leave their house and a few minutes later parked in their driveway and forced their way out the kitchen window and took everything.

“As far as the little boys’ piggy bank, he’s saved a few hundred pounds on his own.

“The family does not feel safe in their own home and cannot replace special sentimental jewelry etc.

She added: “Please be careful.. this happened on Valentine’s Day at tea time in a totally brazen way and I heard afterwards that another neighbor in another street was actually home terrorized and robbed by three men the next day at the same time of day.

“Please be vigilant and keep an eye out for each other and most importantly we must keep our doors locked, these evil people have no shame or fear of getting exactly what they want .”
