Nothing was stolen during either of the incidents, after burglars were believed to have been disturbed by intruder alarms.

A third burglary took place between 10.50am and 1.10pm the same day at an address in Rattlesden Road, Drinkstone.

A window was forced open and several items of jewellery were stolen.
