Three homes in Lincoln have been burgled over the weekend.

Thieves entered a property in Trollope Street through a ground floor window which had been left open and stole two laptops, two digital cameras, two purses containing cash, bank cards and ID cards and an I-pod.

The suspect was seen by one the occupants and is described as white male, scrawny, 5ft 3ins tall, late 20s/early 30s and had shaved blonde hair.

The owners of a property in Hermit Street also left a ground floor window open which allowed a thief to reach in and steal a glass dolphin ornament and a gold chain with a blue pendent.

    We need to concentrate on the reasons for these crimes. What drove these people to commit all this?

    "The suspect was seen by one the occupants and is described as white male, scrawny" Im surprised he had the strength to carry all that then.
