POLICE are today hunting for ram raiders who broke into a Suffolk car dealership and stole two vehicles worth up to £15,000 each.

An alarm was heard at Desira in Western Way, Bury St Edmunds, early this morning.

Officers went to the scene at 2.40am and discovered there had been a ram raid at the business, a Fiat Main Dealer.

A vehicle had been used to pull off the doors to the premises and two cars had been stolen.

Both cars were five-door, Alfa Romeo 147s. One was bright red in colour and the other African Grey.

They are worth in the region of £14,500 to £15,000 each.

Film from security cameras at the Suffolk business have been handed to police as the investigation into the incident begins.

Police are, however, still appealing for information from anyone who may have witnessed the crime or was in the area in the early hours of the morning.
