Police are urging residents to keep their doors and windows locked after two homes were burgled in Sprowston.
Between 11.25pm on Tuesday, July 18, and 7am on Wednesday , July 19, properties on Colindeep Lane and Recreation Ground Road were entered through unlocked doors and an Ipad, cash and the contents of a handbag were stolen.
Broadland Engagement Officer PC Andy Mason says people need to be more security conscious during the summer months.
“During the warm weather windows and doors will often be opened but it is important to make sure they are shut and locked when your home is left empty and before you go to sleep. Criminals are opportunists who will seize any chance they get to take advantage of an insecure residence. Don’t give them that opportunity.”
If you saw anything suspicious during those times, contact Det Con Scott Malcolmson on 101. Alternatively, call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
