Police are seeking the owners of a table cloth and duvet cover that may have been stolen in a series of burglaries in Suffolk villages last Monday.

Nothing was stolen in the first two break-ins, where police say it appears the burglars were disturbed by alarms. These took place at properties in: Great Whelnetham, between 8am and 3.45pm; and Felsham Road, Bradfield St George, between 12pm and 12.30pm.

The third incident took place between 10.50am and 1.10pm at an address in Rattlesden Road, Drinkstone, where a window was forced open and several items of jewellery were stolen.

As part of the police investigation into these offences, a car was searched in which a duvet cover and a table cloth were found and are believed to have been stolen during other burglaries. Officers would like to hear from anyone who believes the items may belong to them.

Officers investigating these crimes arrested a 30-year-old man from Cambridge on suspicion of burglary on Wednesday.

He was taken to Bury St Edmunds Police Investigation Centre for questioning, where he has been bailed to return to on June 1 pending further enquiries.

The arrest took place in the week Suffolk Police launched the ‘See it, Hear it, Report it’ anti-burglary campaign appealing for members of the public to report any suspicious behaviour they may have witnessed in their villages.

Anyone with information about these crimes, or who believes they may own the items pictured, is asked to contact the Bury St Edmunds Priority Crime Team on 101 quoting reference ST/15/1214.
