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.
