BURGLARS targeted two homes in Barnt Green and Alvechurch in the same day.

Thieves forced their way into a property on The Longlands between 6.30am and 6.30pm last Wednesday (November 5).

Two watches, one Armani and the other Diesel, a Swarovski bracelet and a Sony laptop were all taken.

In Alvechurch raiders forced their way into a home on Station Road about 7pm on the same night – it is believed the intruders were disturbed as nothing was taken.

A West Mercia Police spokeswoman said: “You can significantly reduce the chance of being burgled by taking a few simple precautions, especially at this time of year when we observe a peak in house burglaries.

“Most house break-ins are opportunistic, so don’t give thieves an opportunity.”

Anyone with any information should call police on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
