Spalding police are warning residents to be on guard against warm weather burglars who target homes with open windows and doors.
The message follows a burglary on the town’s Woolram Wygate estate.
PCSO Emma Simpson said: “If you see or hear any thing suspicious call 101 or if you witness a crime in progress dial 999.
“With the current warm weather please be reminded to be aware of open windows and doors when you are inside your house or in the garden.”
She said valuables should be kept out of easy reach.
PCSO Simpson continued: “When you go out always close and lock windows and doors, and make sure you secure any out buildings and sheds, even if you are only out for a short time. This also applies to vehicles in the warm weather – remove any valuables from your car.”
