THREE aggravated burglaries occurred at Patterson Lakes last week. A thief stole a purse and a wallet from a house in Lord Rodney Drive, overnight Saturday 16 December.
He or she may have entered through an unlocked sliding glass door.
A retirement village in Gladesville Boulevard was hit twice, overnight Monday 18 December. In the first robbery, the offender removed a flyscreen and opened a rear window at about 1am.
Once inside he or she stole a purse. Credit cards inside were later used to buy goods to the value of $1000. At about 2.30am a burglar at a nearby unit was disturbed while jemmying a rear window and ran off. Detectives believe the same offender is responsible.
