Suffolk police have re-appealed for witnesses to two rural burglaries in Elmswell and Norton.

The first happened between 11.30am and 3.15pm on Thursday, August 2, at a house in Ixworth Road, Norton.

According to a police spokesman, an offender forced entry through some French doors before searching the house and stealing jewellery and watches.

The second burglary happened between 3.30pm and 3.45pm on the same day at a house in Church Road, Elmswell.

“An offender smashed glass in a rear patio door, made an untidy search and stole cash from within,” a police spokesman said.
