Thames Valley Police is advising people to take ‘a few simple steps’ to protect their homes following a burglary in Windsor.
The offence took place between 2.20pm and 3.40pm on Friday, in St Marys Lane.
The thief gained access to the house via a ground floor door and window. They then searched the bedrooms before taking jewellery.
Police say to avoid becoming a victim of similar crimes, people should securely lock all windows and doors and consider fitting security lighting and a burglar alarm.
Any side entrances should be locked and the use of prickly plants should also be considered to deter would-be burglars from trying to gain access to a garden.
Tools should also be securely locked away and kept out of sight as these can be used by thieves to gain access to properties.
Anyone with information relation to the burglary in St Marys Lane should contact investigating officer Det Con Alex Hillan, of Bracknell CID, via the 24-hour enquiry line 101.
