Famagusta CID is investigating two cases of burglary in Xylotymbou with a total of €2,550 worth of jewellery and other valuables stolen, police said.
In the first case, a 57-year-old woman reported to police that between September and December 3 her home had been burgled with €1,900 worth of jewellery and other valuables stolen.
There were no signs of a break-in but officers believe the burglar or burglars managed to get into the house through the kitchen door which was closed but left unlocked, police said.
The jewellery and valuables were not insured and the house does not have an alarm system.
In the second case, a 49-year-old woman reported to police that her home had been burgled and jewellery worth €650 stolen.
Again there were no signs of a break-in and officers believe the burglars or burglar managed to gain entrance to the house via a side door which had been closed but left unlocked.
