Police appeal after 50 burglaries across Newmarket, Mildenhall and Haverhill are linked

Detectives are appealing to local communities to help them put an end to a series of more than 50 burglaries across west Suffolk.

The burglaries across Newmarket, Mildenhall, Haverhill and surrounding areas are being linked by police due to the similarities in their nature.

The typical features of these break-ins is that they usually take place between 5pm in the afternoon and 9pm in the evening, involve forced entry to the property and with jewellery and cash the main target for the criminals.

Police are asking people to be on the look-out for any suspicious behaviour in their neighbourhoods.

This is an alarming amount of burglaries, causing misery and distress to a vast number of individuals and families across the county.

We are pursuing a number of lines of enquiry in relation to these burglaries, but the vital key to catching these criminals could be provided by a member of the public calling us with information about something they have seen and believe to be suspicious.

– Detective Inspector Tam Burgess, of West CID in Bury St Edmunds
