Humberside Police are issuing advice to residents about how to keep their valuables safe.
The spokesperson added: “Registering your valuables with Immobilise and keeping your details updated can help police to identify the owners of lost and stolen property.
“Most burglaries are committed by opportunist criminals who happen to see insecure premises where they can help themselves to the property inside. In most cases the burglary could have been prevented.
“By following a few simple precautions, you can reduce the chance of you becoming a victim of burglary.”
