Beach hut owners have been warned to be vigilant after two were broken into on Cromer seafront within the space of a few days.
Thefts occurred on East Promenade sometime between Thursday, March 3, and Friday, March 11.
Surfing equipment has been stolen from one with two gas camping stoves and large lump hammer taken from another.
PC Joey Mezzetti of Cromer Police Station, said: 'I urge owners to ensure they keep their beach huts locked at all times and to remove all property from inside.
'This is not just limited to valuable property, but to all items, as a thief will often try their luck on the off-chance that something they can see inside may be worth stealing.
'Leaving a beach hut insecure with property inside provides an opportunist thief with a very easy target and this can be easily removed by taking these basic steps.'
Anyone with information should contact PC Mezzetti on 101, Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 or via their anonymous online form at www.crimestoppers-uk.org.
