DC Melanie Clarkson, from Blackpool Police, said: “Burglary in Blackpool is significantly down this year but in this case we are linking these crimes and are following a number of different lines of enquiry. We take burglary very seriously and are determined to catch those responsible. I would ask people to be vigilant and make sure they lock their doors and windows and keep their belongings safe. People should also use security devices such as UV pens to mark valuable items.”
