Crimestoppers is asking the public for information on the whereabouts of Matthew Bryan and Lee Heane.

Suffolk Constabulary has declined to say whether the pair are wanted for questioning in connection to a spate of ram rams last week, including at Clarke’s of Walsham at Jimmy’s Farm in Wherstead, or a break-in at the BP garage in Spring Road, Ipswich.

Separate rewards of up to £2,000 are being offered in relation to the pair, suspected of being involved in high-value burglaries across East Anglia, the south coast and the west Midlands.

Nine of the incidents being investigated happened in Suffolk while a further 12 were in Norfolk.

The pair are believed to be staying in hotels or B&Bs and are known to have criminal associates in the Kent area, particularly Margate, Ramsgate and Broadstairs.

Liam Duffy, Crimestoppers’ regional manager, said: “Burglary is a crime that causes immense distress to victims, which is why it is always taken so seriously.

“Not only is it the shock of having intruders in your own home, but it is the theft of sentimental items that can be particularly traumatic.

“We ask anyone who might know the whereabouts of Bryan or Heane to contact us anonymously by phone on 0800 555 111 or online at Crimestoppers-uk.org.

“No-one will ever know that you spoke to us and you will never have to give a statement to police or go to court.”
