The carved stone crest was taken from St Marys Church in Badley at some point between Saturday, June 1 and Saturday, September 7.

Two metal roads that had previously held the crest in place were left twisted after the incident.

The crest itself is estimated to be worth around £1000.

A spokesman for Suffolk police said: "Anyone who has knowledge of the incident, or the whereabouts of the crest should quote crime reference 37/54054/19 and call police on 101."
