At about 10.40am on Wednesday April 17, a lady returned to her home address in Mellis Road, Yaxley, and discovered two males in the driveway. When they saw the woman, one of them asked her for directions, before they both left in a dark blue, saloon style vehicle, driven by a third male, in the direction of Wortham.

The lady noticed that the side gate to her property had been opened but nothing had been stolen.

At around 10.45am the same day entry was forced to a residential property in Mellis Road, Burgate.
