HOUSEHOLDERS are being reminded to take basic security precautions after the latest in a recent series of break-ins in Bicester.
Police said burglars let themselves into a home in St Peter’s Crescent overnight on Monday last week through an unlocked side door.
They then stole £140 from a handbag in the hallway.
Anyone with information is asked to contact Thames Valley Police on the new non-emergency number 101.
Residents were also advised to take precautions such as buying a 24-hour timer to use on a lamp, radio or TV.
Valuables can also be registered for free on www.immobilise.com to help recover goods and catch crooks.
