"Tackling burglary remains a priority for West Mercia Police and we are committed to protecting our communities and reducing the impact of burglary by working closely with our partner agencies to ensure offenders are brought to justice.

"Making it difficult for thieves is paramount and we would always urge people to be vigilant."
