Police are warning residents to be vigilant after a sharp rise in burglaries in Telford.
Twelve burglaries have been reported to police in the Hadley and Leegomery areas since the beginning of this year. Ten of those were 'sneak in' burglaries - that means that the homeowners were in when the offenders walked in through unlocked doors.
Jewellery, purses, designer luggage, mobile phones, game consoles and tablets were amongst the possessions which were taken.
“Our message to the public is to keep all doors and windows locked when they are unattended. Ensure they are locked before going to bed at night and also in the morning after letting your pets outside.
“We do not want to panic the public but urging them to be vigilant, as this is a repetitive theme and the offenders are taking full advantage."
