Residents across Dunstable have been urged to stay vigilant after a home was burgled on Monday.

Burglars damaged the rear kitchen window and door of a home in Linden Drive, Dunstable, when they gained entry sometime between 10am and 7pm.

They stole a number of items including a Hewlett Packard laptop, nine carat gold wedding band, 18 carat gold diamond ring (with a one carat stone), bank cards, a gold charm bracelet with 10 charms and a gold curb chain necklace.

Police are asking anyone who may have seen someone suspicious in the area during the day to call them on 101 and quote the crime number- JD/45929/14.

Detective Sergeant Simon Hancock said: “It is an unfortunate fact that in the run up to Christmas burglary increases as the nights draw in.

“We are urging local people to take precautions to avoid being the next victim of burglary by downloading our comprehensive leaflet from our website bit.ly/1pFTcB3.”
