|The late John Lennon -'Peace'|
"Those sitting in the ashtrays, shake your jewellery" John Lennon once said during a Royal Variety Show theatre performance; but if Cambridgeshire thieves have their way, they'll be waving wooden beads instead ....
Cambridgeshire Police are urging residents to watch out for suspicious activity following a number of opportunist burglaries in East Cambridgeshire.
The biggest increase in burglaries say Police has been recorded in remote locations across the east of the county. Almost half of the burglaries committed in December and January in East Cambridgeshire occurred in these areas.
Hot on the trail Community Safety Officer Sue Loaker said: "We would urge people to be vigilant, ensure their windows and doors are secured.
"Keep a look out for people acting suspiciously and note registration numbers of vehicles.
"Offenders have been paticularly targeting jewellery and we would advise people to put valuables in a safe place, ideally a floor or wall safe, and not leave them on show."
