Buildings in a Suffolk village have been targeted in a spate of burglaries.

The burglaries occurred overnight between Tuesday June 18 and the next day in Cavendish, near Sudbury.

Two properties in High Street and a further couple in Melford Road were hit.

The first incident in High Street saw a garage window smashed to gain entry with offenders stealing items including a 16 inch bar chainsaw, a strimmer, a Black & Decker jigsaw and a cordless Bosch drill.

The total value of the items is estimated to be £750.

In the other burglary in High Street, an enclosed port in the back garden was entered and a lock and chain securing a lawn mower to a post was cut.

The lawn mower was then dragged across the garden about six metres, where it was left.
