A man has been arrested in connection with a car crime series and burglary in West Suffolk earlier this month.

A number of cars were tampered with in Gazeley between 7pm on Monday August 18 and 10am on Tuesday August 19.

Two cars parked on Moulton Road and Tithe Close had cash stolen from them while another car was broken into but had nothing stolen from it.

Detectives are linking these crimes with a burglary which happened on The Street in the village between 2am and 8am on August 19 where a digital camera and laptop were stolen from a house.

Three sheds on Mill Road were also broken into during the two days, but nothing was stolen from them.

On Bank Holiday Monday (August 25) a 41-year-old man from the Newmarket area was arrested in Bury St Edmunds on suspicion of committing motoring offences and also questioned over the Gazeley crimes.

He was later released on police bail until Wednesday October 22 pending further enquiries.
