BURGLARS stole two wallets from an Ipswich pub before being chased off by one of the regulars.
The theft took place at around 9.30pm on Saturday and was witnessed by a regular customer who was talking on his mobile phone in the car park of the Brickmakers Arms, in Spring Road.
A man wearing a blue baseball cap was seen climbing down from the pub's flat roof. He ran off when the regular, known only as Mick, gave chase.
Landlord Scott Doughty, 33, discovered soon after that his wallet and another belonging to his colleague Matthew Woor, 27, were missing.

Mr Doughty said: "The wallets did not contain much cash but we would like them returned as they contain photographs and other personal items."
"Because the pub has a flat roof it is an easy target for burglars. People are always casing it out. We had an attempted break in when I took over around 18 months ago. The living room window was smashed but nothing was taken.
