The three thefts happened between July 28 and August 3 in Great Barton, and Suffolk police says it is investigating whether the crimes are linked.
The first burglary took place at a property on The Coppice between 9am on July 28 and 7.50pm on August 1, when assailants forced entry and stole jewellery, a watch and a wallet.
Between 3pm on July 28 and 11.30am on July 31, a home in Conyers Way was targeted and offenders forced entry to a window and caused damage to an internal door. It is believed jewellery and a watch were taken.
