DC Quita Passmore, from the Investigation Hub Harrogate, said: “We are examining if the cases are linked and are trying to trace a black Audi estate car with tinted windows that was seen in the area during Friday 16 June.

"However, this information is still being established as part of the ongoing investigations into the four burglaries.

“We are appealing for witnesses to come forward or anyone who recalls any suspicious activity in the Harrogate area last Friday.

"If you can help, please get in touch as soon as possible.”

Burglary 3

DC Passmore added: “This is a timely reminder for residents to remain vigilant and to review your home security now that summer has arrived.

"Even when you are at home and enjoying the sunshine in the garden, or maybe you are just popping out for a short time, it is still vital that your property is left secured to help keep opportunistic criminals at bay.

“Also, please keep your valuables out of sight and your house and vehicle keys out of reach of sneak-in burglars.”
