Police are investigating a theft from a Tulloona Street house in Mount Druitt.
The victim returned home with her shopping at about 11am last Wednesday (February 26).
She left the shopping at the door while she returned to her car to get more items when a man emerged from bushes and took the bags.
He is described as being 18-20 years of age, of skinny build and wearing red shorts.
