MORE than £1,000 worth of items were taken after break-ins at three houses over the weekend.
Offenders got into the rear garden of a house in Forge Mill Road, Riverside, between 2.30pm and 11.30pm last Friday (January 10).
They forced their way through French doors causing £1,500 of damage and also broke a £400 wooden bureau, before stealing a man's fake Rolex white metal watch worth £20.
A ring with an oval sapphire worth £850, and a pair of gold earrings in the shape of a cahow seabird worth £100 and four pairs of yellow metal earrings worth £40 were also taken.
An attempted burglary took place at the house next door between 3.30pm and 5.30pm when thieves caused £50 damage to a fence and £1,500 worth of damage to a rear door but failed to get in.
Another burglary also took place at Atcham Close, in Winyates East, between 11pm on Sunday (January 12) and 7.15am on Monday (January 13).
A £250 Eastern BMX frame, which was white and had custom parts, a £150 Blunt trick scooter which had a purple deck and bars and pink grips, and a blue and green £130 Madd Gear Pro scooter deck, which was just the base with no handles, were all taken from a garage.
Jewellery was also taken from a home in Clent Avenue, Headless Cross, between 1.30pm and 5.30pm last Friday (January 10)
Witnesses or anyone with any information about the Forge Mill Lane burglaries should contact Det Con Tony Flannagan, while the Atcham Close and Clent Avenue incidents are being dealt with by DC Paul Lettis.
Both can be contacted on West Mercia’s non-emergency number 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
