Series of opportunist burglaries over Bank Holiday weekend

Police in Suffolk are appealing for help from the public after a series of burglaries in Haverhill over the Bank Holiday weekend.

Cash, jewellery and a Mercedes car with stolen in four raids. Most of the burglaries happened overnight and in two cases the thief gained entry through an open window.

Inspector Peter Ferrie said: “The spate of ‘creeper’ burglaries is directly targeting open or insecure doors and windows. I appeal to residents to ensure that they close and lock all ground floor doors and windows at night, otherwise they risk leaving an open invitation to a burglar."

Anyone with information about these crimes is asked to contact Suffolk Police on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
