A safe, jewellery and a laptop computer were stolen.
Investigating Officer, Dc Jo Mangham, said the safe was later found dumped at Colchester’s Highwoods Country Park.
The incident took place between 8am and 4pm on Tuesday.
The second break-in happened in London Road, Clacton, between 10am and 3.30pm. A watch and a ring were stolen.

She said forensic examinations were carried out as were house-to-house enquiries.
