A wallet was stolen from a couple's home after they discovered a man inside their property in west Suffolk. 

The burglary is alleged to have taken place in Church Road in West Row at about 3pm on Tuesday, October 10.

A couple entered their house from the garden after initially hearing someone inside their home. 

Upon entering home, they found a man exiting one of the rooms. 

After challenging him and asking him to leave, they discovered he had stolen a wallet from inside a bedside table.

The man is described as white, with dark hair and approximately 5ft10 in tall. He is believed to be around 30 years old. 

A spokesman for Suffolk police added: "He was of a medium build and was wearing dark blue jeans, a short-sleeve, dark-coloured t-shirt and trainers. He also had white hearing aids in each ear."

Anyone with information or who may know who is responsible is asked to contact Suffolk police.
