BURGLARS have targeted the same road three times in just over a week.

Police have launched an appeal following burglaries at three houses in St Albans Drive, Stevenage.

A house in the street was broken into at some point between 10am and 2.45pm on Tuesday, August 6, after a man forced his way in through a side window.

Items, which included IT equipment, jewellery and cigarettes, were taken from the lounge, kitchen and the upstairs bedrooms, before the thief made off from the area carrying a bag.

Two further burglaries occurred in the road on Wednesday.

One had dark hair and was carrying a plastic draw string JD bag.

Police are also trying to trace a car that was seen in the area at the time and parked on a grass verge in Weston Road.

Detective Constable Richard Fox, from the Local Crime Unit in Stevenage, said: “Fortunately a burglary series like this is relatively rare in Hertfordshire however we are determined to do all we can find those responsible and bring them to justice.

“If you believe you saw these men or the car in the area at the time, please contact the Local Crime Unit by calling the police non-emergency number 101 as soon as possible.”
