JEWELLERY and electrical goods worth more than £1,300 have been stolen in four burglaries in North Worcestershire in just five days.
The first burglary happened at some time between 7pm on Friday, October 11, and 3.15pm the following day in Chapel Lane, Wythall.
Jewellery of sentimental value was stolen from the home of an elderly woman after windows were forced.
Between 12.20am and 9.30am on Sunday, October 13, burglars got through a side door in George Road, Alvechurch, causing damage totalling £200 before taking an Acer laptop, a £150 Dyson vacuum cleaner, Philips speakers worth £250 and two cameras - one Toshiba and one Samsung - worth £100 each.
Then between 3.45pm on Sunday, October 13, to 11.30am on Tuesday, a mother of pearl jewellery box and jewellery were stolen from a home in Alder Close, Hollywood, after the raiders smashed glass in the front door to get in.
The last incident in Ten Ashes Lane, Cofton Hackett, was on Tuesday, October 15, when thieves smashed glass in a back door to gain access to the property.
That saw £200 worth of damage caused and a black Hewlett Packard laptop worth £300 was taken.
Officers from West Mercia Police have been carrying out house-to-house inquiries and are looking into whether any of the four burglaries are linked.
Witnesses or anyone with any information should call Det Con Tony Flannagan on 0300 333 3000 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
