Suspects broke into the car in the Burton End area on Saturday morning and stole a rucksack containing medical equipment, prescription drugs and clothing.

Most of the equipment was found beneath an underpass but the bag, drugs- which could cause serious harm if injected or ingested - and clothing are still missing.

The bag is fluorescent yellow and it and the clothing bears the ambulance service emblem.

Anyone with information about this incident or the missing items can contact Haverhill Police on 101 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

  • There was a better time when this sort of villainy was a complete 'no-no' in our county. Now there are few moral standards to prevent this sort of thing. Thank goodness that Russia jailed Pussy Riot for sacrilege in a church!

  • There was once a moral standard in our county that stopped things like this ambulance theft from happening. Alas, no more.
