Three men from Lowestoft have been charged in connection to two burglary incidents in Beccles.

On Sunday March 4, at around 4am, an attempt was made to get into a house in Fredericks Road, with offenders trying the doorhandle. However, they were disturbed when the occupants’ dog started barking and were later seen making away in a hatchback car.

The second offence happened in Nelson Way the same night some time after 12.40am.

Offenders entered a house and stole cash, jewellery, watches, mobile phones and keys to a vehicle.

The men were charged with one count of burglary and one of attempted burglary and were bailed to appear before Great Yarmouth Magistrates’ Court on Wednesday, April 11.
