Detectives have warned people to lock their doors and windows are a walk-in burglary in Norwich.

The incident happened at an address in the Clabon Third Close area sometime between 3pm and 4pm yesterday.

Suspects entered through an unlocked rear door and stole a wallet and five pound coins.

Detective Constable Sharon Fish, of Bethel Street CID, said: 'Many of the thieves we encounter just try their luck in the hope of finding a property that's not been left securely so we would advise residents to make sure you're leaving all doors and windows locked as otherwise you're leaving yourself at far greater risk of being burgled.

'I would urge householders to fit locks, which are fit for purpose for all doors and accessible windows and get into the routine of checking that your windows and doors are closed and locked, even if you're at home, before you go to bed and when you leave the house.

'In the meantime we are asking residents to be vigilant and report any suspicious behaviour as it may assist us with our investigations.'

Anyone who may have seen any suspicious activity in the area between the times stated or anyone with information should contact DC Fish on 101.
