Police are warning homeowners to be on alert after three burglaries in Great Staughton in a two-day period.
Cash and jewellery were taken in the raids, which took place on April 1 and 2, and police are calling on residents to be vigilant and report suspicious activity.
The first incident took place at about 10pm on April 1 in Vicarage Walk, with reports that a homeowner was woken up to two loud bangs and then a light was turned on within the house.
Two males were seen and cash was taken from a bag and an untidy search was carried out.
The second incident took place at Green Close at about 9.30pm on April 1, with burglars forcing open a window before carrying out a search and stealing items.
The third incident, which police are linking to the other two, took place between 5-8pm on April 2 in Beachampstead Road.
Lee Hurley, of Cambridgeshire police, said: “In these offences, the suspects appear to have specifically targeted elderly victims. Police patrols have been stepped up in the area, but please could I ask that if you have elderly or vulnerable neighbours that you remain particularly vigilant around their properties and report any suspicious activity to police immediately.”
