THIEVES have struck at a pub and stolen £4,000-worth of goods from vehicles left in its car park.
Three cars were broken into in the car park of The Lion pub in Needham Market and audio equipment, cash and a laptop carrier case were taken.
The thefts happened at the Ipswich Road pub between 7.05pm and 9.15pm on Sunday and caused £230 damage to the cars.

In a separate incident in the town, pensioners Fred and Edna Page's Nissan Sunny car was broken into outside their bungalow in The Causeway on Sunday night and a £250 stereo system was stolen.
The couple's excess on the insurance policy means they will have to pay for the loss and friends have rallied round to offer a £100 reward for information leading to the thief's arrest and conviction.

Mrs Page, 78, said: “I have been in Norwich hospital to have my knees replaced, Fred has been at Ipswich Hospital for lung problems and now this happens.
“We are on low incomes and cannot afford this. The police, who looked for fingerprints, told us the thief probably wore gloves. It's very frustrating.”
Her 78-year-old husband added: “I'm so annoyed, I am fuming about this. We are both pensioners and could just not believe this had happened.”
