Two homes have been broken into in Barton Mills.

The first incident took place between 7.30pm and 9.20pm on Friday at a house in Bell Lane, when the offender forced open the rear French doors.

Police believed the offender was disturbed when the victim returned home because no items were stolen and it appeared the suspect had escaped over a fence into the neighbouring garden.

The second offence took place between 5.30pm on Wednesday, January 22, and 1pm on Saturday, January 25, at an address in The Street.

Entry was gained via an insecure window and items of gold jewellery were stolen from inside.

Anyone with information should contact Suffolk Police on 101.
