We are appealing for information after four burglaries were reported in Liverpool on Wednesday 26 June.

Just before 3.30pm, a man was seen leaving a room upstairs at a house on Chelwood Avenue, Broadgreen by the occupier, before making off on foot with no items taken.

He was described as being tall, of medium build and was wearing building clothes and a beanie hat.

Between 3.15-4.45pm the same day, it was reported offenders forced entry to a house on Towers Road, Childwall and made an untidy search. They stole a quantity of cash and a Kimberley handbag.

Also on 26 June, a report was received that a man had returned to his home on Hunts Cross Avenue at around 5pm to find two men leaving his driveway. It is believed the men had taken a pearl necklace from the house.

The fourth burglary is reported to have happened sometime between 12.30-3.25pm when a house on Belle Vale Road was targeted. The offenders made an untidy search and took a significant quantity of cash and jewellery.

Forensic, witness and CCTV enquiries are ongoing and anyone with information is urged to come forward.

Detective Inspector Andy McCourt said: "Due to the close proximity and time of these incidents, we believe that they may be linked but will keep an open mind until we trace those responsible.

"We are carrying out extensive enquiries in relation to these incidents and will be acting on all information provided.

"If you recall seeing anything suspicious or might have CCTV or dashcam footage close to the incident locations, we want to hear from you and we will take action on every detail.

"You can give us details either directly or via Crimestoppers, which is anonymous and completely independent of the police.

"Whenever burglaries take place, we are determined to find those responsible for such serious incidents and put them before the courts. If communities keep giving us information, we will continue to take positive action and continue to make the streets safer.

"There is a temptation as the weather improves over summer to leave doors and windows open. We continue to urge homeowners to be vigilant and keep doors locked and windows secure."

Anyone with information is asked to contact 101 with incident numbers 19100337287, 19100337661, 19100337824 or 19100337745 and, contact @MerPolCC, or @CrimestoppersUK anonymously on 0800 555 111. #OpCastle #BeatTheBurglar
