A gang of thieves made off with cash, jewellery and shotgun ammunition after ransacking a house in Tiptree.

The break-in happened in Millwrights between 8am-4pm on Thursday.

Thieves forced open the front door before stealing a small quantity of cash and jewellery as well as shotgun ammunition.

Investigating Officer, Dc Emma Jones, said: “This burglary took place at some stage during the main part of the day so we’re hoping that someone would have noticed the burglar spending a bit of time at the front door, forcing it open before then entering the house.

“We’re also appealing for local residents and retailers who may have seen anyone acting suspiciously or unusual to the area to contact us.”

A forensic examination of the scene was carried out, with house-to-house enquiries also completed.

Anyone with information is urged to contact detectives at Colchester police station on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
