The two thefts took place in the Earlham area of Norwich and high value electrical item were among what was stolen.

The first took place at a home in St Mildreds Road between 11pm on Wednesday, April, 8 and 7.30am on Thursday, April 9, when access was gained through an unsecured door. A black 32in Samsung TV, a mobile phone, a handbag and purse were stolen. The second burglary happened in Beecheno Road between 3am and 6am on Thursday, April 9, again through an unsecured door and an Asus laptop and two wallets were taken.

Some of the items have now been recovered, as they were discarded nearby. Detective Constable Mike Blowers, of Norwich CID, said: I would urge residents to always ensure that they keep their doors locked at all times and to secure their windows if out or overnight. The majority of burglaries involve entry being gained via a rear door or window, so if it is possible to secure your back garden, then I strongly advise people to do so.

This is often simply achieved by padlocking a gate, or by adding height to a fence using trellis.

I urge communities to be vigilant and to report any vehicles or persons they believe to be suspicious, as local intelligence often provides vital information in our investigations.

Anyone with information should contact DC Blowers at Bethel Street Police Station on 101, or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
