Woking homes targeted in daylight burglaries

Jewellery and computer equipment was among property stolen in a series of daytime burglaries in the Woking area.

Surrey Police said thieves had focused on high value items which were easy to conceal in thefts in which the burglars forced entry to properties.

"Thieves have used an implement to jemmy open doors and windows," said crime reduction advisor Mark Saunders.

"I would urge people to take jewellery, car keys, bags and small electrical items out of view during daylight."

Mobile phones

Jewellery was stolen from a house in Broadway Knaphill on Wednesday and a laptop and palmtop computer from a house in White Rose Lane the same day.

Also on Wednesday, two mobile phones and cash were taken from a house in Connaught Road, Brookwood.

A laptop and jewellery were taken from a house in the Rectory Lane area of Byfleet on Tuesday.

A large amount of jewellery and cash were taken and nearly £3,000 damage caused to a house on the Maybury Estate on Monday.
