Homeowners are being reminded to fit sturdy locks after cash was stolen in two break-ins in Pulham St Mary and Great Moulton on the same day.

The first incident saw £100 cash taken from a property on Mill Lane, Pulham St Mary, between 8am and 8.30pm on Wednesday (November 18).

The thieves gained entry through a rear kitchen window and carried out an untidy search before leaving with the money.

Police were then called to an address on Station Road, Great Moulton just after 8pm.

Burglars had again entered a home through a kitchen window, taking a purse containing an unknown amount of cash before fleeing the scene.

Police believe these incidents to be linked and are urging local residents to be vigilant.

Detective Constable Scott Malcolmson said, ' I would urge householders to fit locks which are fit for purpose for all doors and windows and get into the routine of checking that your windows and doors are closed and locked before you go to bed or leave the house.
