Thieves have stolen £200,000 of CCTV and security equipment from the trailer of a lorry which was parked on the A14, near Stowmarket.

The incident took place between 3am and 3.30am on Tuesday, May 15, in a layby on the westbound carriageway between junctions 36 and 37 at Creeting St Peter.

The lorry driver was woken up at around 3.30am by a noise outside the lorry and when he went outside he was confronted by a male suspect. The driver then got back into the cab and drove off and once he had reached a safe distance away, stopped to call police.

It was then discovered that the CCTV and security equipment had been stolen from the trailer.

Now officers would like to hear from anyone who drove along the road between 3am and 3.30am who either witnessed any suspicious activity, or who has a dash cam that may have captured any footage that could be of use to detectives.
