POLICE are appealing for witnesses after two two men were disturbed while burgling a home.

The incident happened at around 3.30pm yesterday when a 12-year-old boy returned from school to his home in Sudbury Road, Sicklesmere, and discovered the pair.

The men left and it was found that the house had been broken into and jewellery had been stolen.

One man was white, 5ft 7ins to 5ft 9ins tall, of average build and in his mid 20s, had a scruffy appearance and wore dark clothing.

The second man was white and of a similar age, height and build.

Witnesses or anyone with information should call DS Tamlyn Burgess at Bury St Edmunds CID on 101.
