Detectives are appealing for witnesses after linking three burglaries in West Suffolk.

The most recent break-in took place at 5pm on Friday, September 25 at a house in Norfolk Road, Bury St Edmunds, where items of jewellery and cash were stolen.

A rear door was forced open to gain entry to the property, but the burglars were disturbed when the occupants returned home.

Two men fled the house in the direction of Northgate Avenue where they are thought to have got into a car believed to be a black BMW, which was being driven by a third man.

The previous day, Thursday, September 24, a property in Mortimer Lane, Freckenham, was broken into between 5.15pm and 8.15pm.

The front door was forced open to gain entry and a number of valuable items of jewellery, along with a significant amount of cash, were stolen from within.

These two crimes are being linked with another burglary the previous week, on Thursday, September 17, in Fornham St Martin.

At some time between 8.30am and 5.15pm a house in Gleneagles Close was broken into, with entry gained by forcing the back door open. The house was searched but it does not appear that anything was stolen.

Police would like to hear from anyone who may have seen any suspicious persons or vehicles in the areas of these burglaries and in particular anyone who may have seen three men and a dark-coloured BMW.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Bury St Edmunds CID on 101 quoting reference MH/15/1908, or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
