Man wearing balaclava and carrying bolt-cutters seen in Brandeston before spate of thefts
A spate of thefts in a Suffolk village has seen property damaged and advice issued on labelling power tools.
Suffolk police received reports of thefts in Brandeston, near Framlingham, between January 4-5 after a man was seen wearing a balaclava and carrying bolt-cutters.
At 3pm on January 4, police received reports of thefts from a Citroen C4 and Mazda MX in The Street, from which vehicle accessories and a DVD player were stolen. A cart, kept at the bottom of a garden, was also damaged.
Early on January 4, a person reported seeing the man wearing a balaclava in The Street, who was confronted and then left the village towards Earl Soham with a second man.
An attempted break-in of a shed was reported overnight from January 4-5.
Emails sent to Brandeston’s distribution list said thieves also stole £2,000 of tool from an outbuilding in The Oaks, and advised secure labelling for expensive equipment.
