Burglars smashed their way into two homes in the same Welwyn Hatfield cul-de-sac on the same evening.
Police were called at 8.09pm on Friday, January 25, to reports of a burglary at a property in Welham Close, Welham Green.

Burglars got in through a rear patio door which was smashed with an unknown object.
They then ransacked the house.
The victim, a man in his 30s, is still assessing what has been stolen, but it is believed jewellery and cash have been taken.
On the same night, police were called at 10.04pm following a burglary around the same time.
Similarly to the first break-in, burglars smashed the rear patio door and made a mess inside the house.
