Two care homes have been broken into in Wellingborough in the last two days.
Offenders forced access to the office areas of the two care homes, taking items from within. At no point have the offenders gained access to the residential areas of either property.
Police officers are urging other care homes to remain vigilant and ensure they take appropriate crime prevention advice to secure their properties.
Anyone who witnesses any suspicious activity near care homes, or any other building, should contact police on 101 or 999 if a crime is taking place.
