In Feltwell, suspects gained entry to a property in Newcombe Road between 2.30pm and 3.45pm where two WW1 and WW2 medals were stolen along with some watches, whilst a home in Broadend Road in Wisbech was broken into between 12.45pm and 2.35pm.

DC Nichola Lane said: “We are linking these burglaries and our investigations are ongoing.

“Officers will be conducting additional patrols over the coming days but I would like to take this opportunity to ask residents to be vigilant and report any suspicious activity in these areas to police on 101 or dial 999 if you believe a crime is in process.

“I would also urge homeowners to review their home security. Please ensure your doors and windows are locked and secure at all times and if you do need to leave your home unattended, something simple such as leaving on the radio or television can be a good deterrent to opportunistic thieves.”

Anyone with information about the burglaries should contact DC Nichola Lane at Kings Lynn CID in 101.

Alternatively contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111
