Acting DCI Jeff Brown of Northumberland Area Command said: “Anyone with any information about these burglaries is asked to come forward and contact police.

“I’d also urge people to help us make life as difficult as possible for these criminals.

“By taking a few simple crime prevention measures such as locking all doors and windows where you can, even when you’re at home and ensuring cars are locked.

“When in the house, put your car keys somewhere safe and secure and out of sight.”
