Burglars ransacked two homes in Carpenders Park in two days last week, prompting a police appeal for footage.

Hertfordshire Police said thieves forced their way into a property in On the Hill sometime between 2.30pm on Sunday, January 21, and 1.30am the next day.

The burglars removed the Ring doorbell before forcing in the front door and doing “a messy search”. They left in an unknown direction and it is currently unknown if anything was taken.

Another home was burgled in Foxleys between 6.15pm and 8.56pm on Monday, January 22.

Police believe the offenders gained entry via a side gate into the garden before entering through the kitchen window.

The thieves ransacked the house and stole a “large amount” of money and jewellery, before exiting in an unknown direction. 

Both victims were not home at the time of the incidents. 

Police appealed for CCTV or Ring doorbell footage of anything suspicious in the area leading up to the offences.

Anyone with  information can contact police via their website or by calling 101, quoting reference number 41/6075/23 for the Foxleys burglary or 41/6077/23 for On the Hill.
