Dated: 10 May 2012
Police are appealing for information after two flats were burgled in South Shields.
Between 6:30am and 3:30pm on Wednesday, May 9, burglars broke into two flats in Wescott Road and Ashley Road.
They searched both properties and stole jewellery from the flat in Wescott Road and nothing from Ashley Road.
Neighbourhood Inspector Peter Sutton said: "We are looking into the possibility that the two burglaries are linked as the flats are opposite each other and I'd appeal for anyone who saw anyone behaving suspiciously in the area on Wednesday morning to contact us with any information."
Anyone with any information into the burglaries is asked to contact police on 101 ext 69191.
