The break-in happened between 3.30pm and 5.15pm on Wednesday, November 23.

An address in Thorney Road was targeted in the raid.

The property was entered by an offender, or offenders, climbing over a side passageway gate.

A rear patio door was then smashed to gain entry and the home was ransacked inside as the burglars conducted a messy search of the property.

Cash and jewellery were stolen during the burglary.

Burglary prevention advice from Suffolk Constabulary includes:

• Avoid keeping any valuable jewellery items in the master bedroom.

• Avoid keeping valuable jewellery in obvious places such as jewellery boxes, under the bed or at the bottom of the wardrobe.

• Consider hiding such items in several locations around your home (not a wardrobe).

• If using a safe, please ensure this is secured to the floor.
