The heartless thieves have been targeting the homes of pensioners.
Detective Sergeant Adams said “In all of these cases the victims were over 60 and entry was forced to each property.
“All of the houses were then ransacked and items including cash and jewellery were stolen.
“The first of these was at a property in the Glebe Park area of Carnmoney on Monday, 08 January at some point between 2:00 pm and 6:00 pm.
“A house on Glebe Road was then targeted on Tuesday, 09 January between 3:15 pm and 6:15 pm.
“Another burglary was then carried out at some point between 3:45 pm on Monday, 08 January and 9:30 am on Tuesday, 09 January at a house in the Woodland Crescent area of Whiteabbey.
“A property was also entered at some point between 3:00 pm and 9:00 pm on Tuesday, 09 January in the Whitehouse Park area of Whiteabbey.
“We recognise the traumatic nature of these crimes for older people and their families.
