POLICE are asking neighbours of elderly residents to be extra vigilant after three houses were broken into in the same night.

Milk was stolen from a fridge after burglars forced the rear patio doors of a house in Linkway, Crowthorne, overnight on Sunday last week from 10.15pm to 8am on Monday.

There were also two burglaries the same night in Dukes Ride, Crowthorne and Longdown Road, Little Sandhurst and in both cases rear doors were also forced open. In all three cases, the victims were elderly people who lived alone, Anything suspicious should be reported to 101.
