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.

Lee Hurley, of Cambridgeshire police, said: “In these offences, the suspects appear to have specifically targeted elderly victims.
