The spate of break-ins around Sai Kung continued last night, when two adjoining houses near Sheung Yeung Village  were burgled one after the other. Around 9:00 pm a domestic helper at 981 Clearwater Bay Road alerted police to a broken window and some minor ransacking. Although it transpired that nothing of value had been taken, the police noticed that the window of the adjoining property had been forced open.
