A singer who once appeared on television talent show The Voice no longer feels safe in her own home after burglars ransacked the house.
The culprits raided Keri-Ellah Cromack’s home in Hough End Court, Bramley, in the early hours of Sunday while she was out with friends, and fled with around £4,000 worth of her belongings.
Included was jewellery, electrical items and clothes – as well as a necklace holding the ashes of her dog Benny, which died three years ago.
Miss Cromack, 21, said: “I would like to know how they can live knowing they have made someone feel the way they’ve made me feel.”
She added: “They just trashed my house for anything they could find. They took personal items that wouldn’t even matter to anyone else.
“They’ve completely ruined my security. I don’t feel safe in my own home now.”
Items stolen from Miss Cromack include a camera, an Apple laptop, Pandora and Michael Kors bracelets, clothes, Vivienne Westwood shoes, make-up, rings, an iPad, recording equipment and a jewellery box.
Mum Debbie Cromack said she had been “walking the streets” around Bramley Shopping Centre trying to find her daughter’s special necklace.
And her sister Holly has set up a Just Giving web page to raise donations so that Miss Cromack can try and get her life back on track.
In January she won the Yorkshire Evening Post-backed Excite and Entertain talent competition at the White Rose Centre.
And last year the former Leeds West Academy pupil, who works at the Posh Square beauty salon in Stanningley, appeared on BBC singing contest The Voice.
Police confirmed that a burglary took place and asked people with information to call 101.
