Nine raids on homes in Black Country spark police hunt

Detectives are searching for two burglars after raids on nine Black Country homes in two months.

The thieves have stolen money, mobile phones, jewellery and televisions in raids in West Bromwich since mid May.

Police patrols have been increased in the area in the wake of the raids, which seem to target elderly people.

Anyone who has seen any suspicious behaviour in the Mountbatten Close, Burlington Road, Lambert End and Devereux Road areas should call police.

The men wore dark clothing with hooded jackets and are described as black and in their late 20s or early 30s, West Midlands Police said.

One of the men is believed to have worn a black and white bandana around his neck or waist during the burglaries.
