The spate of burglaries in Haverhill shows no sign of relenting with four over the bank holiday weekend.
The first was between 3.40am and 6am on Saturday (August 24) in Fryth Close.
Burglars got in through an unlocked rear window and around £95 in cash were snatched.
The second was between 11pm Friday (August 23) and 7am the next day (Saturday, August 24) in Cross Close.
It is unclear how burglars broke in, but no force had been used. £55 in cash was stolen.
The third was between 11.15pm Sunday (August 25) and 8.30am the following day (Monday, August 26) in Westbourne Court.
Burglars got in through an open window and around £200 in cash and a quantity of jewellery was taken.
The final burglary is not believed to be linked to the previous three and differs from the others as it occurred between midday and 3.30pm on Monday (August 26) in Withersfield Road.
Burglars forced open a rear window and an untidy search of the property saw some car keys taken, which were then used to steal a ‘59’ registration, beige Mercedes E250, which had been parked in the garage.
Haverhill Inspector Peter Ferrie said: “The spate of ‘creeper’ burglaries is directly targeting open or insecure doors and windows.
“I appeal to residents to ensure that they close and lock all ground floor doors and windows at night, otherwise they risk leaving an open invitation to a burglar.
“We are putting out extra police patrols in the town every night and will continue to until we catch those responsible.
“I urge anyone who may have information about who is committing these burglaries to come forward, as they have a huge impact on the lives of the victims.”
Anyone with information about these crimes is asked to contact the Bury St Edmunds Priority Crime Team on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
