Jersey police force appeal after burglaries in the west

Cash, electrical items and jewellery have been stolen in a series of break-ins in the west of Jersey.

Two properties were targeted in daytime burglaries in St Brelade. Another break-in occurred in St Ouen.

The States of Jersey Police began implementing Operation Hornet in January 2012, which aimed to target burglars in the island.

Det Insp Steve Langford said people should be mindful of security and ensure valuables were not left in view.

He added: "We have received a great deal of support [for the operation] and we are grateful for that."
