Jewellery, diggers, cars and money are among the items stolen in a spate of thefts across east Suffolk.

Suffolk police has revealed that, since the start of November, officers have responded to reports of five residential burglaries, seven thefts of motor vehicles, five thefts from motor vehicles, one theft from a shed or garage and one theft from a business in Beccles and Lowestoft.

In one burglary in Lowestoft, £5,000 worth of jewellery was stolen, while a digger was stolen from Bungay.

Some of the vehicles stolen include a Fiat 500 from Beccles which was later found damaged in the town, a BMW stolen from an address in Lowestoft, and a Skoda Fabia stolen from Shipmeadow.

Between November 2 and 7, there were also two cases of burglaries from businesses in Worlingworth and Heveningham and two thefts from motor vehicles in Horham and Knodishall.

Inspector Ed Scott, from Halesworth police, said: "It is a concern that a series of burglaries and thefts have happened within such a short amount of time.

"We would urge our communities to be vigilant and to report any suspicious activity, including vehicles or persons.

"Your little snippet of information may be the crucial link in completing the jigsaw and understanding who is responsible."

People living in east Suffolk are being encouraged to keep windows closed and make sure that electronic items are hidden from view, and to lock vehicles, ensuring that they have taken any valuables with them.
