CCTV images have been released after medicines and cosmetics were stolen during a burglary at Lloyds Pharmacy in Ipswich.

The break-in is the third in a matter of weeks at the Hawthorn Drive pharmacy.

The thieves used a garden spade to smash a glass pane in the pharmacy door, allowing them to gain entry.

Once inside, medication and a quantity of cosmetics were stolen.

The break-in occurred between 10.50pm and 11pm on September 1.

The pharmacy was targeted again between 2.20am and 2.35am on September 7.

It is believed an offender forced entry by throwing a paving slab through the front door.

This comes in the wake of another theft which took place on August 27 when an unknown person forced entry by smashing glass in the front door. It is believed perfume and medication may have been stolen during this raid.

Police believe all three break-ins are linked.

Anyone who recognises the individuals in the CCTV image, or anyone with dashcam footage captured on the dates and times stated, should contact the Neighbourhood Response Team (NRT 1) at Landmark House, Ipswich, on 101 quoting reference 37/51292/18 (7 September), 37/50305/18 (1 September) or 37/48972/18 (27 August).
