Both happened in the Springfield suburb of the city between 11pm on Wednesday and 7am the next day and are being linked by police.

The first break-in happened in Mayne Crest where thieves stole a handbag and its contents, all valued at just under £300.

The second happened on nearby Downsway, with thieves taking a laptop.

Investigating Officer Dc Ray Hull said: “We’re keen to speak to anyone who saw any suspicious behaviour, activity or unusual vehicles on the streets of Springfield during that Wednesday night, early Thursday morning.

“In addition, we would like to hear from anyone who has been offered a cream fake Louis Vuitton handbag with matching purse, a share certificate or a dark silver Toshiba laptop in unusual circumstances within the past week.”

Police are reminding homeowners to close and lock doors and windows.

Those with uPVC doors should lock them by turning the handle up and using the key, even when indoors.

Anyone with information in connection with these two burglaries is urged to contact detectives at Chelmsford police station on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555111.
