The attempts were made last weekend.

The first of the incidents took place on Saturday, 16 April, and the second attempt was made just a day later on Sunday, 17 April.

At the time of publication (Friday, 22 April), no update on either of the incidents were provided by police.

However, officers working with the Burbage Beat Team have been sure to advise residents to remove valuables such as cash, jewellery or sentimental items when they head on holiday, or plan to visit a relative who is in hospital or care.

The Beat Team further suggested: “Please try and make properties look occupied by tidying the garden, removing post, or asking a neighbour to park on the drive. 

“Also consider light timers and using blinds rather than curtains.”
