Suffolk police have issued a further appeal for witnesses following a ram raid in Lavenham in the early hours of Thursday morning.

The crime took place at the Co-op Foodstore on the High Street on Thursday at 1.15am when offenders drove a Subaru into the store.

Detective Chief Inspector Nick Power at Suffolk Police said: “Cash has been removed from store ATMs by the victim as a security measure and our investigation into this incident is continuing.

“We are interested in hearing from anyone who may have seen or heard any suspicious activity in or around the area at 1.15am on Thursday, December 21.

“One of the offenders is described as a white male, 5’10” tall, medium build and speaking with an English accent. He is described as wearing a dark top, light grey or white trousers and a black balaclava and was reported to have left the scene in the direction of Water Street in Lavenham.”

Anyone with any information should contact Suffolk police on 101 quoting incident reference SC-21122017-16.
