Another three burglaries have been reported to police after news of five in the same part of Suffolk was released yesterday.

Incidents in Mildenhall, Holywell Row and Moats Tye are all said to have taken place since Monday.

It follows burglaries in Sudbury, Great Waldingfield, Stanningfield and Little Whelnetham which prompted police to appeal for anyone seeing suspicious behaviour to report it immediately.

The latest crimes saw jewellery stolen from Forest Way in Mildenhall between 11.30am on Monday and 10.50am on Wednesday, a side window smashed in The Street, Holywells Row between 7am and 5pm on Wednesday and a paving slab used to smash glass in Moats Tye near Combs sometime on Tuesday night.

The Mildenhall incident is also being linked to a burglary in Wamil Way, with both crimes believed to be part of the Operation Domain series of 80 burglaries reported recently.

Speaking on Wednesday in response to the week’s earlier incidents, Detective Inspector Nick Power of Bury St Edmunds CID, said: “I am again appealing to local communities to report any suspicious activity that they may have seen or heard.

“We have had reports of suspicious activity given to us after the burglaries were discovered, but if we received these reports earlier, we may have been able to prevent the break-ins from taking place.

“I do appreciate that people may not think that what they have seen or heard could be criminal behaviour and they may be concerned that they could be calling the police unnecessarily, but I would much rather they make the call and let us assess the information.”

The police’s campaign See it, Hear it, Report it is encouraging the public to report any suspicious behaviour to try and crack down on these incidents.

Anyone with information or who witnesses suspicious behaviour in their local area should call Suffolk Constabulary on 101, or 999 if they believe a crime is in progress.
