Shotguns, jewellery and cash were stolen from a property in rural farmland in Suffolk, police have said.

Three firearms were stolen during the burglary in Clopton Road in Swilland, north of Tuddenham, between 6.45pm and 8pm on Tuesday night this week.

A Suffolk Constabulary spokesman said: “Police are appealing for witnesses and information after three firearms were stolen during a burglary in Swilland.

“Access to the property was forced, with offenders smashing a window to gain entry, and most rooms were searched.

“A gun cabinet was removed from the premises, which contained two shotguns, including a Browning shotgun, and a rifle. A quantity of jewellery and a wallet were also stolen.

“Anyone who witnessed the burglary, saw any suspicious activity during the times stated or has knowledge of the current location of the firearms should Ipswich CID at Suffolk Police on 101 quoting crime number 37/63453/17, or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 55511.”
