Burglars have robbed six homes and garages on the outskirts of Invercargill over the past week.

Southland District Police say the burglaries in the Branxholme, Lorneville, Makarewa and Wallacetown areas appear to be linked with offenders targeting properties in which the occupants were away on holidays.

Items stolen include meat from freezers, power tools, chainsaws, lawnmowers and electronic items, police say.
