In the same road, between 1pm and 10.50pm on Sunday, a house was broken into through a rear window and a number of items, including two gold rings, a gold necklace and a gold bracelet, were stolen.

A third burglary is believed to have occurred in The Drift between 5.50pm and 8.20pm on Sunday. In this incident, a rear window was once again forced and a 26-inch Samsung TV was stolen.

An attempted burglary was also reported in The Pot Kilns between 8am and 9pm on Sunday. Attempts were made to force a rear door but no entry was gained.
