A HANDBAG was pinched from a house in the quiet village of Rippingale on Monday night.
In another case of patio doors being left unlocked, a burglar sneaked in and took the bag.
A police spokesman said: “We are urging residents to make sure their doors and windows are locked at night when they go to bed.”
Police are appealing for information on the culprit. Anyone with information is asked to call 0300 111 0300 or Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
