Detective Constable Chloe Smith from Rugby Serious Organised and Acquisitive Crime Team said: “These offences have understandably been extremely distressing for the victims, especially with those who came face to face with the burglars. They have also caused a great deal of concern in the local area.

“Having carried out a number of enquiries, including looking at CCTV, we have identified two suspects who have been interviewed and are now helping with our enquiries.

“We’re continuing appeal for anyone with information that may help with out enquiries to get in touch.”

The suspects have been bailed while enquiries continue.
