Police have warned residents to remain vigilant following a surge in burglaries and attempted burglaries in a Black Country town over the weekend.

A group of suspects, around four to six of them, have been going around Brierley Hill trying to snap locks off doors and gain entry to homes.

The incidents have been taking place in the early mornings of Friday, Saturday and Sunday, said PCSO Webb, based at Brierley Hill police station.

Homes have been targeted on Blenheim Road, Ragees Road, The Portway, Bromley Lane, Astor Road, Wellington Road and Madeley Road.

"Geographically all the locations are in a stones throw away from each other," he said.

Witnesses say suspects are males who are both 'white and black', said PCSO Webb.

West Midlands Police has issued a warning to residents in the area to keep their homes secure.

"While enquiries continue to identify the offenders, as a force can we place just ask all members of the public to remain vigilant." said PCSO Webb.

"Please remember to always make sure both doors and windows are securely locked during the evening."

For more information, contact police on 101.
