POLICE are urging residents in the Withymoor area to be vigilant after reports of several house break-ins.

Warnings have been issued by the Amblecote Neighbourhood Team after two burglaries were reported on Monday September 14 - one of which saw a car stolen from a driveway.

The first happened in Turners Lane on the Withymoor estate, between 8.20pm on Monday September 14 and 8.20pm on Tuesday September 15.

Offenders lock snapped the rear UPVC rear door to gain access to the property where they stole a set of keys to a blue seat Arona VRM (registration number BV20 YKJ) and made off with the vehicle from the driveway.

Anyone who saw anything or who has CCTV footage that could help is urged to contact police and quote crime number 20DY/221907Q/20.

Another incident, an attempted break-in, happened in Gayfield Avenue, Withymoor, on Monday September 14 between 2.30am and 2.50am.

Offenders attempted to gain access to the rear of the property through a UPVC rear door but they made off when they were disturbed by the occupant of the home who had woken up due to the noise.

Any residents with CCTV footage that may show anyone acting suspiciously is urged to get in touch with police and quote crime number 20DY/220903W/20.

Stourbridge PCSO Neal Hunt urged residents in the area to be vigilant as police "have received several other calls regarding local burglaries" and he urged anyone who sees any suspicious activity to contact police immediately. People can report incidents or suspicious activity on the 101 number or via Live Chat online but should call 999 if a crime is in progress.
