A spate of burglaries in the Pocklington area over recent weeks has prompted police to again urge residents to stay vigilant.

Over the last month there have been thefts from properties in Bielby, Melbourne, Wilberfoss and Stamford Bridge, while police have also reported recent thefts from vehicles in Pocklington.

A similar method of entry was made at the burglaries in Bielby and Melbourne on the 19 and 20 November, with the offender(s) using a ladder to force open upstairs windows.

Criminals also forced entry into the properties in Wilberfoss and Stamford Bridge on 28 November.
