There was a spate of burglaries across South Gloucestershire earlier in the week.

Seven were recorded on Monday 11 February and Tuesday 12 February – all happening between 6pm and 10pm.

There were two burglaries and an attempted break-in in Cadbury Heath, with others reported in Almondsbury, Kingswood, Little Stoke, Stoke Gifford and Bath. Stolen items have included handbags, jewellery, cash and Euros. Many of the victims have been vulnerable elderly people.

DC Nadine Partridge said: "These break-ins have all happened between 6pm and 10pm and in each case the front door has been forced. Obviously we're investigating the possibility that they are linked, while keeping an open mind. What we need people to do is to call 999 immediately if they notice anyone behaving suspiciously around front doors."

In some cases, the culprits have claimed to be 'security' or 'police'.

DC Partridge said: "These men have been wearing hats and scarves to conceal their faces. Police officers will always have their identification with them and if you are in any doubt call 101 immediately."

The men are both described as white, in their early 20s, about 5ft 8ins, wearing dark-coloured clothing and with local accents. One is said to be stocky, while the other is of average build.

If you have any information which could help enquiries call South Gloucestershire CID on 101. Alternatively ring Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
