Officers would like to trace a man after an incident that happened at around 9.50pm on Sunday at a property in Church Lane, Hoo.

A man entered an outbuilding at the property and was disturbed by dogs at the premises – he then ran across the drive and was seen leaving in a red hatchback - possibly an old style Toyota.

The man is described as being around five foot 10 feet tall and was wearing black clothing.

Two further incidents took place in Friday Street, Brandeston.

The first happened between 7pm on Sunday and 7.30am the following morning. A storage unit was burgled and three shotguns and three rifles were taken. Tools including a large pair of bolt croppers were also stolen.

Officers are keen to trace a man who was seen driving a dark car in the area at the time which is described as being the size of an Astra.

A second premises – a business unit – was also entered between noon on Sunday and 6am the following morning. An office and workshop were searched and several power tools were stolen. A green Land Rover Discovery, registration Y838 LDY, was also taken and it is believed that this vehicle was used to transport the stolen items from both incidents.

  • Whilst obviously not knowing the full circumstances, I thought firearms shotguns were supposed to be kept in a secure gun cabinet.
