Jewellery, cash, a television and a chainsaw were stolen during a break-in at a house in Great Cornard near Sudbury last week.

It happened between 5.15pm and 9pm on Friday, November 24, at a property in Bures Road.

According to police, offenders forced open a rear door to gain access to the property before an untidy search was carried out.

A police spokesman said: “Various items were stolen including a chainsaw, jewellery, a television and an amount of cash.”

Three male suspects were spotted on a footpath leading to the property as the occupant arrived home.

Shortly after, a vehicle with its lights on pulled up behind them before it drove off quickly towards Bures.

Anyone who witnessed the incident or has any knowledge of it should contact Bury St Edmunds CID on 101, quoting crime reference 37/75629/17 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
