POLICE are appealing for information about four burglaries, believed to be linked.
The first happened between 7pm on Friday, October 11 and 3.15pm on Saturday, October 12, in Chapel Lane in Wythall.
Jewellery of sentimental value was stolen from the home of an elderly woman after windows were forced.
The second incident happened in George Road in Alvechurch, between 12.20am and 9.30am on Sunday, October 13.
Access was gained through a side door causing £200 damage, and items taken included an Acer laptop, a Dyson vacuum cleaner worth £150, Philips speakers worth £250, a Toshiba camera worth £100 and a Samsung camera.
A mother of pearl jewellery box and jewellery were stolen from a house in Alder Close in Hollywood, between 3.45pm on Sunday, October 13 and 11.30am on Tuesday, October 15, after glass in the front door was smashed.
And a house in Ten Ashes Lane in Cofton Hackett, Bromsgrove, was broken into between 3pm and 3.15pm on Tuesday, October 15, and a black Hewlett Packard laptop worth £300 was stolen.
Entry had been gained by smashing glass in rear doors causing £200 damage.
House to house inquiries have been carried out, and police are looking into whether any of the four burglaries are linked.
The police are promoting crime prevention advice through the website westmercia.police.uk.
They are also urging people to property mark valuables such as laptops and cameras and then make the details viewable to the police by registering them at immobilise.com which improves the chances of getting the items back.
Witnesses or anyone with information about any of the burglaries are asked to contact Detective Constable Tony Flannagan on 0300 333 3000 or ring Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
