Police have issued a warning to residents to keep doors and windows closed and locked after a spate of burglaries in Kimberley and Eastwood.

In the last month there have been 26 reported burglaries in the area which targeted 18 houses — nine of which were left insecure — and eight businesses and out buildings, like sheds or garages.

In the same period there were items stolen from 21 vehicles including sunglasses, iPods and sat navs from cars and tools taken from the back of vans.

Police advised residents to keep valuable items, like phones and keys, out of sight and to use burglar alarms and affix locks to gates and out buildings.
