The county of Suffolk has always been a low crime area and a safe and beautiful place to live and work. Suffolk Constabulary is committed to ensuring it stays that way. Unfortunately over the past couple of months the Western area has suffered a significant increase in burglary dwelling offences.
Since the 1st January this year, there have been 66 burglaries across both the Babergh and Mid Suffolk districts.
Offences are occurring during both the daytime and the evening, and jewellery is the main item stolen. It is believed offenders are becoming more risky when committing offences and there may be times when local residents have seen the offender(s) in the area.
Suffolk Police would like to remind local residents that if they see any people or vehicles that look out of place or which raise suspicions please telephone on 101 with any information such as time, location, clothing or registration details. Always 999 however if an offence is taking place. Read more
