COMPUTER equipment and jewellery were taken in two burglaries which were both carried out in Catshill.
The first one took place between 6.30am and 9pm on Friday (February 14) in Oak Apple Road.
The raiders smashed glass in a back door to gain access to the property and among the items stolen were an iPad 4 in a purple faux suede cover, a gold bracelet, a white gold bracelet, a white gold necklace, a gold charm bracelet with a teddy bear charm on it and a silver Guess watch.
A gold crucifix and gold St Christopher were also among the haul.
The second saw a home in Acorn Road targeted at some point from 4pm on Friday (February 14) and 11.15am on Sunday (February 16).
The thieves forced the back sliding door and an iPod Classic in grey was taken, along with a Gear sound dock which was described as being splattered with white paint.
Det Con Mark Lazenby of West Mercia Police said: “Burglaries can have an enormous impact on householders and the victim of the first burglary in particular has been extremely distressed by it.”
Witnesses or anyone with any information should call DC Lazenby on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
