Witness appeals have been launched following two burglaries in Stevenage yesterday (Thursday) and Wednesday, where morphine and an engagement ring were stolen.

Between 9.40am and 10.10am yesterday, offenders gained entry to a property in Ely Close and took money, medication and jewellery.

Assistant Investigator Quentin Lane said: “It is only a short period of time where this offence could have occurred and I would appeal to anyone who was in the area at the time and saw anyone acting suspiciously to contact police.

“The medication taken was morphine, in both tablet and liquid form. This is only prescribed to people with genuine medical conditions and in accordance with specific instructions. If someone should take this without instruction it could have a serious effect. If you come across this please hand it into police.”

Police were also called to an address in Mendip Way on Wednesday, following a burglary that occurred some time between 5.40pm and 7.15pm.
