Police are appealing for information following three burglaries in Lancaster over the weekend.

The incidents happened between Saturday 10th and Monday 12th September on Beaumont Street, De Vitre Street and Dumbarton Road.

The incident on Dumbarton Road took place between 11.30pm on Friday 9th September and 7.00am on Saturday 10th September. The offender entered the house there via a ground floor window and stole a laptop computer, a mountain bike and some food items from the fridge.

At Beaumont Street, between midnight and 5.00am on Saturday 10th September, the offender climbed through the kitchen window and stole a number of items including a purse, a pair of trainers and a small amount of cash.

The incident on De Vitre Street took place between 7.30pm on Sunday 11th September and 4.30am on Monday 12th September. The offender entered the property through a window and stole a laptop computer and a mobile phone charger.

Detective Sergeant Mark Stephens said, “We would appeal to anyone who has information about these offences to come forward and contact the police.

“We would also urge people to make sure that they leave their doors and windows locked when they are not at home or through the night and not to give thieves the opportunity to take advantage.”

• Anyone with information is asked to call Lancashire Constabulary on 0845 1 25 35 45 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
