A Range Rover and an Audi RS6 were taken and police are appealing for information.
"We were called at around 3.15 am on Saturday, December 13 to a report of a burglary at a property on Newick Road, Little Aston," a police statement read.
"Unknown offenders gained entry to the property by snapping the locks on a pvc window. Following an orderly search they found the keys to a Range Rover and an Audi RS6 parked on the drive and drove away in them.
