Since Monday there has been six reports of break-ins.

The first burglary (incident number 174 of March 21) happened during Monday night going into the early hours of Tuesday morning.

The side of a wooden gate was broken to a home in The Elms in Hatton. The offenders then entered the rear garden and broke into a wooden shed and stole a ladies mountain bike and a saddle from a mens bike.

The second incident, which was an attempted burglary, also happened during Monday night going into Tuesday morning.

During this period offenders used a heavy object to break large windows at a business in Market Street. Despite their efforts they failed to get in so nothing was stolen.

Another break-in (incident number 408 of March 22) happened on Cowper Close.

At 3.40am on Wednesday, offenders broke into a vehicle that was parked outside a home and stole a laptop and charger from inside.

Another attempted break-in (incident number 244 of March 22) happened at home in Oberon Close in the Heathcote area.

At around 3.30pm on Wednesday, the resident of the home heard a tapping noise on a rear window.

The resident investigated and saw two youths, with their faces covered, trying to removed the window frame.

They realised that they had been spotted and ran off.

Another incident (incident number 35 of March 23) happened on Edmondscote Road.

During Wednesday night going into Thursday morning a Ford Transit van was stolen from outside a house in the street.

The sixth break-in (incident number 298 of March 23) happened at some point between 8.10am and 4.45pm yesterday (Thursday).

Offenders entered the rear garden of a new build home in Battersby Close and then smashed the glass of the patio doors.

Once inside, they searched the bedrooms before making off with jewellery.

They also stole the keys to a BMW, which they used to steal the car outside the house.

The police are warning people to be vigilant and to report any suspicious behaviour.

Anyone with any information about the above incidents should call the police on 101.
