THIEVES walked into a house in Long Lawford through an unlocked door while the occupants were inside.

The burglary happened sometime between 5 and 7pm on Saturday when thieves walked around to the back of a house in Chapel Street, Long Lawford, and walked in through the inlocked door.

A handbag containing house and car keys, money, purse, ID, and bank cards was stolen without disturbing anyone in the house.

Some of the items were abandoned in West Street which could link a Silver car to the offenders.

A spokesman for Warwickshire Police said: “Please consider locking your doors and windows at all times even when you are inside house and ensure that your valuables including keys are not easily visible from any doors or windows.”

This is the second burglary of its kind in the village in two weeks.
