A safe containing a sum of cash was stolen from the home of a woman in her late 70s, police have revealed.
The woman's carer discovered the safe had been ripped out when she paid a routine visit to the elderly woman's Bury St Edmunds home this morning.
Police believe the metal safe, which was secured to the wall and floor inside a hallway cupboard at the property in The Vinefields, was stolen between 6.40pm last night and 7.55am today.
A sum of cash stored inside was also stolen by the unknown suspect.
Suffolk Constabulary is investigating the burglary and urge anyone with information to contact officers on 101.
