In previous incidents thieves have focused on ground-floor flats.
They have often got in by reaching through small windows left on the latch to open larger ones, or simply by walking in through doors that have been left unlocked.
The criminals have entered the properties while occupants are sleeping – stealing small items including cash and cards.
DI Suzanne Davies said: “We are targeting patrols to tackle this issue and several lines of enquiry are being followed to bring potential offenders to justice, but prevention is key in terms crime reduction on this issue.
“Criminals are getting in through unlocked doors and windows. We would urge people to really think about their security at night – even when the weather is warmer.
"If you leave ground-floor doors and windows open then you really are leaving your property vulnerable.
“It is also a good idea for families to talk to elderly relatives living in the community and explain these issues to them.
“Early reporting of suspicious activity is vital in terms of helping us to increase our chances of making arrests, so if you see anyone acting out of the ordinary in residential areas then please call us on 101.”
