A SECOND man has been arrested after a break-in at a home in Pouy Street in Sibton on Friday, January 25 in which shotguns, ammunition, jewellery, alcohol, cash and electrical items were stolen.

The 19-year-old man from Saxmundham was arrested on Wednesday, January 30 and interviewed in connection with the burglary that happened between 10.45am and Friday afternoon.

Items including a pump-action shotgun, two side by side shotguns, two over and under shotguns, shotgun cartridges, a digital camera and thousands of pounds worth of jewellery were taken.
