MASKED men have broken in to a house in Ardrossan - three months after targeting the same property. 

Police are on the hunt after the three masked men forced their way into the house in Kirkhall Gardens sometime between 4pm and 7pm on Monday, January 6.

A sum of cash worth a low four figure sum was stolen.

The smash and grab comes just 10 weeks after the family were first targeted on October 22.

In that break in four or five men forced their way in to the family home and threatened an 11-year-old girl before making off with cash, jewellery and personal items. 

A police spokesman confirmed to the Herald the two attacks were on the same property. 

He said: "It's the same property that was targeted in October. Enquiries are still ongoing into both incidents. Officers are keeping an open mind as to the links between the two incidents."

Enquiries in to the most recent attack have established three men were seen in the area around the time with balaclavas or a similar item covering their faces.

They left the area in a white car.

Detective Sergeant Stephen McCulloch of Ayrshire CID said: "Enquiries are ongoing into this break-in and we would urge anyone with information which could help to come forward.

"In particular we would be keen to speak to anyone who may have seen three men or a white car in the area at any time to let us know.

"If anyone has dashcam footage or private CCTV from yesterday afternoon, I would ask they review the footage and pass anything of note on to us.

"Any information can be passed to police by calling 101, quoting incident 2933 of 6 January, or anonymously to Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111."
