TWO Droitwich burglaries are now being linked by police.
A burglary which took place in the Dodderhill area between 6pm on Monday, March 3 and 6pm the following day.
Burglars entered through the back of the house by smashing a kitchen window before making an untidy search of the bedrooms – targeting jewellery and a computer.
They stole an Apple MacBook Air laptop with a 13ins screen; a lady’s Omega divers watch with black face, orange bezel and black leather strap; a man’s Chanel J12 chronograph black ceramic watch, a lady’s blue square-cut topaz ring with a 16ct yellow gold band and white gold with diamonds twisted stone setting, which was purchased in the Bahamas, and a white gold Cartier nail design ring.
Cartier ring PC Nicky Burgess of Worcester Proactive CID said: “We are linking these burglaries because they both took place in the same part of Droitwich, at similar times and similar items were taken.
“We want to renew our appeal for witness to come forward and anyone who saw or heard any suspicious behaviour in the Dodderhill area of the town from early on Monday afternoon through to the early evening of Tuesday.
“Also, if anyone is offered any of these items, they should contact us immediately on the non emergency number 101 quoting incident number 524s 040314.”
The other burglary in Dodderhill took place between 2pm and 8pm on Monday and anyone with information is asked to ring the same number quoting incident number 643s 030314.
