Burglars broke into three Felixstowe homes within a matter of hours looting items of jewellery, including wedding rings.

The first took place between 9.40am and 3pm on Friday, June 16, in Beatrice Avenue, where burglars broke in through the front of a house and stole gold wedding rings and a gold belcher chain.

The second happened in Links Avenue between noon and 4.30pm, when items of jewellery were taken after burglars smashed their way in through a patio door.

A third took place at an address in Picketts Road between 8.45am and 3pm – but it is not believed anything was stolen.

Police are investigating possible links between the incidents.

Witnesses, or anybody who has any information, should call Ipswich CID on 101 quoting reference 42172/17 (Beatrice Avenue), 42176/17 (Links Avenue) or 42165/17 (Picketts Road). Alternatively call Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555111.
