She posted on Facebook: & # 39; Never been so angry in my life. Just discovered that our house has been broken into and has been completely robbed.
& # 39; Michael & # 39; s (her boyfriend) dad came at four o'clock & # 39; in the afternoon to check the dog to smash the back door and destroy the entire house.
& # 39; This is about the 50th break I have seen in our area in recent months.
& # 39; There are really some ******** in the world. I'm not sure what they stole, apart from all my jewelry, some things I had saved from the Olympics and a few medals. Horrible, terrible scum. & # 39;

A later report requested help from the Greater Manchester Police after she claimed that no officer had been sent six hours after the crime was reported.
She tweeted: & # 39; @gmpolice we called about 6 hours ago, but no one has come to the house to follow it up. Can you please help ?? & # 39;
GMP told the BBC that investigation into the crime was underway and a spokesperson added that the reaction of the force was based on the threat and risks to the public, and that the & # 39; difficult decisions & # 39; when setting priorities for calls.
McColgan also confirmed that her dog was safe after the thieves locked it in the lounge.
The 28-year-old also had jewelry and Olympic memorabilia that were taken by thieves on Wednesday
Born in Dundee, McColgan won a 5000 million silver medal at the European Championships in Berlin last year, as well as a bronze medal in the 3000 m at the European indoor championships in Belgrade in 2017.
She represented Great Britain at the London 2012 and Rio 2016 competitions. She followed in the footsteps of her mother and coach Liz who won the 10,000m at the 1991 World Championships in Tokyo and claimed silver at the 1988 Seoul Olympics.
McColgan had stolen a chain in the shape of the Olympic rings, which her mother gave her as a Christmas gift.
