THREE homes in Blyth have been broken into in the space of two weeks.
The first break-in took place between 3pm on Friday, February 24, and 8.45pm on Sunday, February 26, in Osprey Drive.
The thieves’ haul included a laptop computer, games console and money.
The next was carried out between 10am and 11pm on Tuesday, March 6, at a house in Curlew Way but nothing was stolen.
Another break-in between 6.30pm and 7pm the following day in Albatross Way also ended with the thieves fleeing empty-handed, after triggering a burglar alarm.
Sergeant Garry Neill, of Blyth police, said: “Burglary is an extremely distressing crime to suffer and one that can have a lasting impact on a victim.”
“By taking simple crime prevention measures homeowners could stop avoid becoming a victim of crime.
“Lock your doors and windows whenever you leave the house, where possible try to fit timers on lights and if you have a burglar alarm fitted then use it.”
Anyone with any information into the burglaries is asked to contact police on 101 ext 69191.
