A city centre home was broken into in broad daylight while its owners were out, with items of jewellery stolen.
The incident took place between 12.15pm and 4.30pm last Friday (April 10) when the thieves forced open a back door of the house in Cell Barnes Lane.
Detective Constable Paul Cullinan said: “This burglary occurred during the day and so it is possible there may have been people in the area at the time of the incident.
“If you saw anyone or anything suspicious around this time, please contact me as you may have vital information that could assist my investigation.”
In a separate incident, offenders attempted to break in to a property in Camp Road on Monday (April 13) at 6.15pm by forcing open a window to the back of the house.
