Abrown quilted Barbour handbag has been stolen from a blue Skoda parked at a farm in Stratford St Mary.

At 2.30pm on Monday, September 2 the Barbour handbag containing a leather purse, bank cards, an iPhone 5, a cheque book, reading glasses and diary were stolen from the vehicle at the property in Ipswich Road.

Police would like to speak to three men who were in the area on quad bikes.

The first man is described as white, 5ft 8in to 5ft 10in, slim build, in his late teens/early twenties and wearing a dark patterned crash helmet. He was wearing a black T-shirt with a design on it and dark tracksuit bottoms.

The second man is described as white, 5ft 8in to 5ft 10in also in his late teens/early twenties. He was wearing a red crash helmet, a dark T-shirt and he had a dark rucksack on his back. Both of these men were riding red quad bikes.

The third man is also described as 5ft 8in to 5ft 10in, slim build, in his late teens/early twenties. He was wearing a dark crash helmet with a white shirt and dark trousers, and he was riding a green quad bike. All three men wore dark coloured gloves.

If you were in the area at the time and saw anything suspicious, or have any information about these men or the crime, please contact Pc Justin Wood at Sudbury Police Station on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

  • While not condoning theft at all, I do wonder why some people apparently continue to leave expensive valuables on display in parked cars. In this case I'm also curious how the crime could be timed so exactly and how the three men seen in the area were all on quad bikes and wearing crash helmets yet their heights and ages could be judged so well?
