The two burglars were spotted using a grinder to cut the lock of a garage door in Templars Court in Haverhill in the early hours of Tuesday morning, March 9.

When challenged by a member of the public, one of them threw a bike towards them before making off on another bicycle.

Police later received reports that two other garages had been targeted and had locks cut off.

A spokesman for Suffolk police said it is not known if anything was stolen from inside.

A description has not been given.
