Police are reminding residents to secure their homes after two ‘creeper-style’ burglaries in Bury St Edmunds this weekend.

The first took place at around 4.30am on Saturday February 27 at a house in Beard Road.

The victim was woken up by the sound of their front door closing, which had been left insecure, and went downstairs to find that the house had been entered and items including a games console, jewellery box and laptops had been stolen.

The second burglary also occurred in the early hours of Saturday morning, between midnight and 8.15am, at a house in Linton Gardens.

Entry was gained through an insecure rear door and some cash and packets of cigarettes were stolen.

Anyone with information about these burglaries is asked to contact Bury St Edmunds CID on 101 quoting reference 19733/16, or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
