MORE than £1,000 worth of damage was caused during the burglary of a property in Catshill between 8am on Thursday (February 13) and 3pm on Monday (February 17).

After attempting to force the front door at the home on Golden Cross Lane, the thieves gained access to the house by smashing glass in the back door.

A Medion silver laptop with a black keyboard which was in a material carrier bag and was worth £500 and a men’s plain silver ring, worth £250, were taken in the incident.

This burglary follows on from two others which we reported on yesterday (Monday).

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.

Witnesses or anyone with any information should call DC Tony Flannagan on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555111.
