Police are hunting car thieves after a Mercedes was stolen from a driveway.
The car was recovered by officers following the break-in at a house in Hythe earlier this month.
But officers are now appealing for witnesses to come forward in a bid to find the raiders.
They stole two sets of car keys from the property in Hillcrest Road on Friday, October 13.
The break-in is reported to have happened between 6.45pm and 7.30am the following morning.
Det Con Bethany Gumley said: "We would appeal to anyone who might have information about this burglary to contact us.
"We also want to urge people to be mindful of their home security and would ask they check whether there’s any further steps they could take to reduce their chances of becoming a victim of crime."
Police have issued residents advice about how to keep their homes and valuables protected.
It includes keeping doors and windows locked even when leaving the house for a short time, keep car keys somewhere safe and out of sight, if possible invest in CCTV, alarm or security lighting.
Residents are also advised to use time switches on lights, radios and make the house look occupied and if possible lock cars away in a garage.
They have also been advised to look on the Kent Police website for extra burglary prevention tips.
Anyone with information about the theft is asked to call police on 01843 222289 quoting ZY/50113/17 or Kent Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555111.
