Lincolnshire Police appeal for information after series of burglaries in rural villages, in North Kesteven
Police are investigating a potential burglary series in a short period of time and sharing crime reduction recommendations.
The incidents happened between November 17 and 21 in the North Kestevan area.
Three burglaries were reported in residential areas in Carlton Le Moorland, as well as further incidents in Bassingham, Metheringham and Dunston.
Cash and jewellery were targeted in the burglaries.
The offenders gained access to, or attempted to break into homes, by smashing or forcing a window, or attacking a rear UPVC door.
In the run up to Christmas, Lincolnshire Police are engaging with residents and encouraging communities to look out for their neighbours homes, especially if they are away during the festive season.
Residents are also being warned of the potential pitfalls of advertising goods for sale on social media, especially expensive items such as jewellery or watches.
Even without an address, criminals may be able to piece together information about where the seller lives.
