DC Nadine Partridge said: “These break-ins have all happened between 6pm and 10pm and in each case the front door has been forced. Obviously we’re investigating the possibility that they are linked, while keeping an open mind. What we need people to do is to call 999 immediately if they notice anyone behaving suspiciously around front doors.”
She added: “These men have been wearing hats and scarves to conceal their faces. Police officers will always have their identification with them and if you are in any doubt, you should call 101 immediately.”
The men are both described as white, in their early 20s, about 5ft 8ins tall, wearing dark-coloured clothing and with local accents. One is said to be stocky, while the other is of average build.
