Officers investigating a series of burglaries in which jewellery and money were stolen believe they are connected.

Three burglaries took place in Ditchingham on Tuesday, May 14, when someone broke into properties and carried out untidy searches.

On Rider Haggard Way, entry was forced into the rear doors of a property between 7.45am and 12.45pm before jewellery and watches were stolen.

A second location on the same road was broken into when the rear door was forced and jewellery, cash and bank cards were taken.

Between midday and 3pm on the same day, the door was forced open at a property on Hamilton Way - just off Rider Haggard Way - and jewellery was stolen.

A spokesman for Suffolk Constabulary said: "I can confirm we are investigating three burglaries which happened in Ditchingham. We believe they are linked."

Anyone who has relevant information or saw suspicious activity in the area at the times stated is encouraged to call police on 101.
