Some sneak thieves like it hot.
PC Sandy Ruffett, crime reduction officer at Chace Avenue police station, Coventry, said some of the thefts had occurred when patio or back doors had been left open while people were watching TV in the front room.
She added: "We need extra vigilance when doors and windows are left open to air the house. It only takes a few minutes for an opportunist thief to strike."
