A group of thieves broke into an old woman's house in South Auckland and took everything - even the bed sheets, her family says.

Police in Takanini are appealing to members of the public for any information into the incident, after at least three people were caught on security footage making off with items from the house in the early hours of last Friday, October 4.

The woman's grandson posted the black and white images of those allegedly responsible - showing them hauling out bags of items - online.

"Takanini, Walters Road, watch out for these (expletive) who robbed my grandmother's house on Friday morning.

"These scumbags stole everything including the bed sheets.

"They also broke into the garage and car to take whatever wasn't bolted down,'' he wrote on Facebook.

At least three people are caught on camera. It appears to include at least one woman and two men.

One image shows a person wearing a hooded jumper and gumboots - their arms full with sheets.
