Officers have launched a witness appeal following the theft at The Card Factory in Hamilton Road.

The victim told police she was “jostled from behind” in the card shop between 12.40pm and 1pm on Friday.

A Suffolk Constabulary spokesman said: “She thought nothing of it at the time, but in the next shop the victim realised that she no longer had her purse which contained money, bank cards and some personal documents.”

The force spokesman said the purse was later found discarded in a Costa Coffee outlet in Hamilton Road.

Police are keen to speak to three young women – possibly in their late teens to mid 20s – who were seen standing in the doorway of The Card Factory at around this time.

All three were wearing casual clothing including coats and jeans. One of the women was of slightly bigger build than the other two, police said.

Call police on 101.
