Spate of burglaries in Rutland
A number of burglaries have sparked a warning from police.
In the past fortnight, three homes in Oakham were targeted by burglars.
Officers in Oakham are urging people to read advice on how to protect their properties from crime.
Measures include window and door security, making sure burglars have nowhere to hide in a distraction burglary and a checklist for securing properties when no one is home.
PC Joe Lloyd, an officer in Oakham, is also requesting people sign up to the email messaging service Neighbourhood Link which provides updates on incidents, policing activities and appeals as well as crime prevention and community safety advice.
A home was also targeted in Ryhall last week with the owner's personal belongings and a spare set of keys taken.
