Police want to speak to these two men in relation to three cars stolen in one night

Burglars broke into three homes between the hours of 11pm on Wednesday, September 13, and 7am the following morning, whilst trying to get into four more properties.

In each of the successful raids the intruders got in by snapping door locks.

At one of the burglaries in St. Francis Close in Hednesford, keys to a blue Audi A5 S Line Black Edition were taken before the car was driven away.

While the same model only in white was stolen when the keys were swiped from a property in Turner Grove, Perton.

In the third theft a black Mercedes 220 at Templars Way, Penkridge, was driven off.

The other homes targeted were in Penkridge and Hednesford.

Staffordshire Police has released CCTV images of two men both aged 18 to 25 that they want to question in connection with the break-ins.

Detective Inspector John Quilty said: “We’re seeking the public’s help to identify these men and pursue our enquiries.

“We want to remind people to check their security and ensure that car keys are kept out of sight. We’re working hard to crack down on these offences and would welcome any information the public can share with us.”

Anyone with information about the identity of these men or the offences should contact Staffordshire Police on 101 quoting incident number 104 of September 14 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111
