Homes across north east Essex burgled
5:25pm Sunday 21st October 2012 in News
BURGLARS have struck at several homes across north east Essex.
Detectives believe two break ins in Claton may be linked.
Thieves forced the front door of a flat on Selsey Avenue during the daytime on Friday, October 19.
It is thought the owner's dog frightened them away and they left empty handed.
The burglars then may have struck again when a satellite set-top box was stolen from a flat on Beach Road.
It happened sometime between 6pm Friday, October 19, and 9am the following day.
Thieves also stole a metal boiler and copper piping from a bungalow on Humber Avenue, Jaywick, after forcing the window.
It happened sometime between Wednesday, August 29, and Sunday, October 14.
Two televisions, a games console, laptop, cash and jewellery were also taken in a Harwich burglary.
The door of a patio to the Orwell Road home was forced sometime between Sunday, October 7 and Sunday, October 14.
Anyone with information should call Essex POlice on 101.
