Car stolen off driveway of home in Ipswich

PUBLISHED: 17:39 26 September 2018



A car was stolen off the driveway of a home in Edward Close, in Ipswich, but was later recovered in a road nearby.

The incident took place at 5.45am on Friday, September 21, when two raiders forced entry to the property by smashing a window with a brick.

A set of keys belonging to the victim’s vehicle – a grey BMW - were stolen and were then used to drive the vehicle away from the drive and in the direction of Kingston Road.

A short time later, after encountering a police patrol vehicle, two offenders decamped from the vehicle and fled in the direction of Bramford Lane.

Despite attempts to track the offenders officers were unsuccessful on this occasion.

Anyone who witnessed any suspicious activity or who has any information about the crime is asked to contact Suffolk police quoting reference 54220/18
