Police are urging residents to follow some simple crime prevention advice to make their homes less attractive to thieves.
A spokesperson said: “To give your home the lived in look even when you’re out use timer switches on a lamp, radio or TV so that they turn on as it gets dark in the afternoons.
“You should also keep house and car keys out of sight and in a safe place.
“If you witness any suspicious activity, please report it to police and always dial 999 if a crime is in progress.”
