Kent Police is reminding residents to double lock their doors following a spate of break-ins in Swanley.

A number of homes were targeted last week with cash, jewellery and car keys taken.

In the early hours of April 2 a Vauxhall Astra was stolen from a driveway in Moultain Hill after thieves entered a home and snatched the keys.

On the same morning, a handbag, cash, bank cards and cigarettes were stolen from another property in the same road.

Between 2am and 6am a property in Cyclamen Road was also burgled. A purse, an Ipad, a set of keys and tools were taken.

Inspector Ian Jones of the Swanley neighbourhood policing team said: “On each occasion the offenders forced a door to gain access to the property.

“Residents can always make their homes a lot safer and this includes ensuring all doors and windows are double locked properly.”

Kent Police is currently running its Stay Safe this Spring campaign.

Just had my property marked with SmartWater. It's a pretty good deterrent as it has a 100% conviction rate.
