Police are appealing for information after an X-Box 360, games and jewellery were stolen during a burglary in Ipswich on Tuesday.

It happened between 9.30am and 11.15am at a house in Ashley Street on Tuesday, October 17.

A police spokesman said: “The offenders accessed the property via a downstairs open bathroom window with a search of the bedrooms taking place.

“An X-box 360, X-box joy pads, and X-box games were taken along with a necklace.”

Police have advised the public to be vigilant following the burglary and have reminded residents to lock all doors and remove keys before leaving the house.

They say front doors should be kept locked even when at home, especially when out in a back garden.

Anyone who saw any suspicious activity during the times stated or has knowledge of the burglary should contact DC Donna Whelan-Smith at Ipswich police on 101 quoting crime reference 37/67766/17 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
