THIEVES who stole computer games and cash have sparked a warning by police.

Officers are now urging residents to ensure their properties are secure.

Advice includes:

- Keeping windows and doors locked at night and when you are not home or in the room.

- Put all car keys and other keys out of sight and not in reach of windows and letterboxes.

- Have an intruder alarm system installed by an approved contractor.

- Do not leave ladders and garden tools in your garden; lock them away in your shed.

- Use door chains and spy holes for extra security if someone knocks on the door.

- Leave a light on so your home looks occupied if you are going out for the evening.

- Ensure side gates are locked.

Anyone with information about the Landport burglary should call 101, or Crimestoppers, anonymously on 0800 555 111, quoting 44160425813.
