Police have warned people in the north of Norwich to be on their guard after a spate of walk-in burglaries continue in the Silver Triangle area of the city.
The latest crimes happened at the weekend, in the early hours of Saturday morning and sparked a warning from police for people to make sure they lock their doors and windows at night.
Between 3am and 9am a burglar entered an address in Northcote Road through a front door which had been left unlocked and stole a laptop from the lounge.
Meanwhile, between 1am and 7am the same day, a Canon camera, Toshiba laptop and a make-up bag were stolen from a house in Albany Road.
The burglar got in through either the front or back door, which had both been left unlocked.
Officers are urging householders to get into the habit of checking that doors are locked at night.

Anyone who saw any suspicious activity in the area should contact police on 101, or if you believe a crime is in progress always dial 999.
• Police have also made an unusual appeal after a magistrate court bailiff had a clamp they placed on a vehicle stolen.
The triangular clamp was placed on a vehicle, which was due to be seized for non-payment of fines, in Golding Place.
But, on Thursday, October 17, the bailiff discovered that the car had vanished, along with the clamp and the padlock attached to its front wheel. It was taken between 8pm and 10pm.
