There have been 17 house burglaries or attempted break-ins reported between last Tuesday and Monday this week. However, ten people have been arrested.
Detectives hunting those responsible for a significant spate of burglaries since before Christmas reiterated their call to the public again this week - as locals can help play their part in beating the burglar by reporting any suspicious behaviour immediately.
