Police arrests after burglaries
LEISTON police have arrested a number of men in connection with several burglaries in the town.
Police arrested two 21-year-old men believed to be part of a group suspected of criminal activity in the area at an address in Crown Street yesterday, where they also found items of stolen property from an earlier burglary at Leiston Middle School.
This comes after a series of arrests in recent weeks. Three males, one aged 21 and two others aged 17, were arrested following a burglary at a house in Sylvester Road at around 2am on May 24.
A stolen television was recovered in a police search of a home in Saxmundham two days later.
One of the 17-year-olds is also being held in connection with several other burglaries, including a break-in at Quay Street in Orford between April 17 and May 3, and another house burglary at Valley Road, Leiston, on May 15.
