The burglaries took place in the Newbold and Walton areas.

Detective Inspector Steve Topham said: "We are committed to tackling burglary and remain committed to catching those responsible and bringing them to justice.

"Burglary can often be opportunistic, with would-be thieves looking to capitalise on the darker evenings or where, perhaps, a door or window has been left insecure.

"Please do make sure your front and back doors and windows are kept secure, even when you’re in the house, so that you can reduce the risk of your home being targeted.”
