BURGLARS have made of with hundreds of pounds of goods following a spate of burglaries across Tendring.

Crooks have targeted homes in Walton, Harwich in the past five days.

In the latest raid burglars targeted a house in Clay Road, Walton, stealing several items of jewellery.

The break in happened sometime between 12.10pm and 6.20pm on Friday.

A spokesman for Essex Police said: “The owners discovered their home had been ransacked and jewellery had been taken from a bedroom.

“A safe had also been forced off the bedroom wall and left on the landing.”

Jewellery stolen includes a diamond and white gold ring, a diamond solitaire ring, a gold patterned bangle and a Links style white gold bracelet.

A house in Fronks Road, Dovercourt, was burgled between 10am and 5.30pm on Tuesday.

Officers believe thieves forced open the conservatory door of the property and stole a gold chain and more than £200 in cash.

Would-be burglars also tried to force their way into a home in St Andrew’s Road, Weeley, between 10am and 1.30pm on Thursday.

They attempted to jemmie open the back door, but were unable to gain entry.

Anyoone with information should call Clacton CID on 101.
