Warning after break-ins.

POLICE are reminding people in Coleshill to keep their doors locked after the latest in a spate of sneak-in thefts.

A man escaped with a packet of cigarettes after he was disturbed breaking into a home in Lichfield Road, at 9.10pm on Saturday.

The latest incident is the sixth theft in less than three weeks, which are all being linked by police.

Detectives are advising people to keep their doors - particularly their back doors - locked even while they are at home.

The thief who struck on Saturday was white, aged 30 to 35, about 5ft 10in tall, of slim to medium build, with fair or light brown hair.

He wore a blue cap, a white jacket and blue jeans, and is believed to have escaped on foot.

All the thefts happened just off the A446 Stonebridge Road.
