Detectives are linking a burglary in Badwell Ash with an attempted burglary in Westhorpe.

Between 5pm and 10pm on Friday, a home on Hunston Road at Badwell Ash was broken into and a Meiner 16-bore side by side shotgun and a jewellery box were stolen.

At 10pm on Friday, a woman was inside a property in Tudor Court, Westhorpe, when she heard someone attempting to break in, a Suffolk police spokesman said.

She alerted police and while she was on the phone a second attempt was made.

She then turned on lights inside the property and it’s thought this scared off the would-be burglar.
