The suspects are using cycles to travel around the Broadstone area, targeting properties from 6pm into the evening.

A spokesperson for Dorset Police said: "If you see these individuals or suspicious behaviour, do call us on 999, we are here for you and extremely keen to catch these guys and get them to court.

"Whilst we don't post every single patrol, as not all our officers on the frontline have access to our social media channels, we are focussing a lot of attention to Broadstone at the moment.

"We won't be very far away if we are needed to respond to a call of this nature."
