Police seize Land Rover connected with masked gang's tool thefts near Mildenhall




Police have seized a Land Rover which detectives believe to have been used in a theft and an attempted theft near Mildenhall.

Last week a gang of five targeted two properties within 30 minutes looking for tools, using a burgundy coloured Land Rover as their getaway vehicle.

On Thursday, between 1.45 and 2pm, the 4x4 pulled up outside a property in West Row's Pott Hall Road when the masked gang got out.

They went down the side of the property but fled the scene when disturbed by a resident. No items were stolen.

Fifteen minutes later the same gang targeted a farm in Undley, where they stole tools from inside a Toyota Hilux.

On Friday Suffolk Police issued an appeal looking for dashcam footage of the Land Rover used by the gang and the next day seized the vehicle, which was using altered registration plates, in Red Lodge.

A force spokesman asked anyone with any information about the incidents to contact Suffolk Police quoting 37/24002/20 for the incident in West Row or 37/24135/20 for the incident in Undley.
