Police are warning people in Bury St Edmunds to remove keys from locks after one was stolen through a cat flap.
It happened between 12.30am and 4.30am yesterday in McIntyre Walk after the victim had gone to bed locking the back door with the key left in the lock.
The offender has reached up through the cat flap and stolen the key gaining access to the house. The key, and the bunch of others it was attached to, appear to be the only items stolen.
Anyone with information about this crime is asked to contact the Bury St Edmunds Priority Crime Team on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
Police advise residents to always keep their doors and windows locked and to remove the keys keeping them out of sight, denying burglars easy opportunities to gain entry to their properties.
