Three burglaries in just over a week have prompted police to warn Bletchley residents about keeping their valuables safe.

Thieves struck on April 19, 26 and 27 and each time stole jewellery.

The first burglary took place on April 19 as thieves broke into a house in Severn Way through a back window between 11.40am and 2.05pm and stole various items of jewellery.

The second burglary, on April 26 took place between 6pm and 9pm in Water Eaton Road when thieves got into a house before stealing cash, jewellery and personal paperwork.

The last one took place in Pinewood Drive at 9.30pm on April 27 as the residents were having a party. A thief got in through the first floor of a house through a window, carried out a messy search of the bedrooms and after being disturbed left with cash and jewellery.

Detective Constable Scott Dempsey, said: “I would like to reassure all residents that Thames Valley Police is continuing to do all it can to stop burglaries and the criminals who commit them.

“I would like to speak to anyone who may have information in regards to the incidents above. If you have been offered any of the stolen items, make sure you get in touch with Thames Valley Police.

“When you are leaving your house, even to pop to the shops down the road, make sure all windows and doors are locked and you set your house alarm if you have one.”
