On the same evening thieves are alleged to have even stolen cakes during a break-in in Ridgeway Crescent.

Other homes have been targeted Denbeigh Drive and Norton Crescent.

Kent Police sergeant Andy Gallon said: "We are continuing to investigate a number of recent offences in the Tonbridge area and are also reminding residents of the steps to take to reduce their chances of becoming a victim of crime.

"It is tempting in this hot weather to leave doors and windows open but by ensuring they are securely locked residents can make it more difficult for burglars get in and they are far less likely to hang around and risk getting caught.

"It is also a good idea to make a home appear occupied if you are out and using timers for interior lights or to turn on a radio is a good way of doing this."

Homeowners are also advised to register valuables. This can be done for free on www.immobilise.com.

Logging details helps officers return the items to their owner if they are found or seized.
