Over the Christmas period two homes on Beeches Farm Road in Crowborough were burgled.
Between Friday 23rd and Tuesday 27th December a house was broken into whilst the home owners were away. An untidy search of the property was made and a number of items of jewellery were taken including a pearl necklace and a diamond and ruby ring.
Another property on the same road was also broken into some time between Friday 23rd and Friday 30th December, again whilst the owners were away over the festive period.
Upon their return home they discovered a number of items of jewellery were taken, although other high value items such as electronics were not touched.
Police are currently considering whether these two break-ins are linked to a series of burglaries that have taken place across the north of Sussex.
Anyone who was in the area at the time and may have seen anyone acting suspiciously is asked to email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 101 quoting serial 1138 of 27/12 or 819 of 30/12.
