Gun wielding trio ransack Ivanhoe home and steal car
Police are investigating an aggravated burglary in Ivanhoe on Monday morning.
Detectives believe three men armed with guns approached a Malta Street home at around 4.40am.
The occupant of the home, a 60-year-old man, saw the men approaching and ran from the house.
The trio stole a vehicle from the property, which was found in Oriel Road, Bellfield, a short time later.
The thieves took off in a blue Toyota with the registration ‘1GT3FH’, which was stolen from Lilydale a day earlier.
The blue Toyota is still missing.
Police have released an image of a similar vehicle (pictured below).
