"It appears that the offender has simply walked into homes and taken valuable items easily to hand. Things like mobile phones, car keys and purses are easy, potentially valuable things to take and so ensuring these are not sat within easy reach of the door at night is important.
"If anyone can recall seeing or hearing anything during Tuesday night, please get in touch as it may be important to the investigation."
