MORE than £3,000 worth of laptops and computers were stolen from two houses in the borough.
A house on Barlich Way in Lodge Park was broken into between 11.15am and 3pm last Wednesday (March 26) after thieves got in by using a side gate.
They stole two iPads and three iPods, two Xbox consoles, a purple netbook, a grey laptop, a Sony DVD recorder worth and pair of Yves Saint Laurent sunglasses.
The previous day (Tuesday, March 25), a house in Fulbrook Close in Church Hill, was broken into between 2am and 5.30am when a Viglen Durus laptop was stolen in a large black leather-effect laptop bag.
The thieves also took a small black, leather-effect handbag containing a red purse and bunches of keys.
Detectives do not believe the break-ins are linked but want to hear from anyone who may have seen or heard anything suspicious in the areas.
Det Constable Cheryl Jones said: "The handbag taken at Fulbrook Close may have been thrown away nearby as it contained little of any value, so we would be interested in hearing from anyone who may have come across it."
Anyone with any information should contact Det Con Stuart Mitchinson or Det Con Jones at Redditch Police Station on the non-emergency number 101, quoting incident reference 374-S-260314, or Crimestoppers anonymously 0800 555 111.
