Police are warning Bingham residents after five incidents of house burglary in the town during November.
A number of these offences have taken place during the evening, after dark, and over the weekend.
Addresses are being attacked whilst the resident is out and the rear of the address particularly patio doors are being forced to gain entry.
Electrical items, cash, jewellery and car keys have been stolen from these homes.
In addition cars parked on the drive or road have been stolen using the car keys, and police are particularly warning those owners of high value or performance cars to be mindful of this issue and to look at their home security to ensure they do not store car keys in obvious places.
Among the burglaries reported in November so far is one at Fairfield Street over the weekend of October 31 to November 3, and an unsuccessful attempt to gain entry to a home on Long Acre East by looking for garden tools to assist between November 1 and 2.
A car was stolen with keys from an address on Calder Gardens before 9pm on November 5, two homes on Cherwell Gardens were entered between 11.30pm and 12.30am on November 15-16, while there was another burglary on 22 between 7pm and 9pm on Chapelfield Grove.
