"Suspects have gained entry through insecure windows and doors. Among items stolen were two handbags kept near kitchen windows, a laptop, a cheque book and a television.
"We would urge people to keep their window and doors either locked or latched and fastened.
"People should also not leave valuable items within easy reach of windows and doors if they are open as they are more at risk of opportunistic thieves.
"Our Crime Prevention Officers have been visiting victims, giving them relevant advice. We will be stepping up patrols in the areas but we are keen to hear from anyone who has information about these burglaries."
