Police IconPolice are appealing for witnesses and urging communities to be vigilant following a series of break-ins across west Suffolk. There have been 26 burglaries across Forest Heath, St Edmundsbury, Mid Suffolk and Babergh over the past two weeks (since 21 November) which are similar in nature and detectives are exploring how many of them may be linked. These crimes have typically taken place in rural locations, between the early afternoon and evening, at properties where the occupants have not been at home, and involved the offenders forcing entry. The items that are mainly being stolen are cash, jewellery and electrical items. As the majority of the burglaries in this series involve houses being entered by force rather than because of insecurities, police are urging members of the public to be their eyes and ears and 'See it, Hear it, Report it'.
