Police are investigating four burglaries and one attempted break-in in Hatfield in two days.

At around 7pm on Saturday, January 26, a property in Cloverland was broken into.

The victim returned home to find the rear doors of the property open.

Burglars ransacked the home and stole jewellery (crime reference 41/8556/19).

Thankfully would-be burglars were disturbed when they tried to break into a home in The Holdings during the day on Friday, January 25.

They were disturbed while trying to smash the glass in a door (crime reference 41/8265/19).

Sometime on the same day, a home in Lemsford Road was broken into.

It is thought that burglars got in through a kitchen window. They made a mess in the house and it is not yet known what was stolen (crime reference 41/8274/19).

Again on Friday, burglars struck in Heathcote Avenue and smashed a back door glass panel. They made a mess inside (crime reference 41/8278/19).

That same afternoon, burglars smashed their way into a home in Briars Lane through the patio.

They made a mess in the bedrooms (crime reference 41/8266/19).

Police would urge people to ensure doors are double locked at all times and windows are kept closed and locked.

If anyone has any information that could help with the investigations, call 101 quoting the relevant crime reference number.
