Ipswich: Attacks on businesses being connected

Police are linking a burglary at an Ipswich pharmacy with an earlier incident at a nearby barber shop.

The first incident occurred at around 11.50pm on Friday when a window at a barbers in Ellenbrook Road was smashed.

Officers would like to speak to a man, described as white, wearing a black beanie hat and black clothing with white sleeves, in connection with the incident which they believe is linked to a burglary shortly afterwards in Stoke Park Drive.

The glazed door of a pharmacy was smashed between midnight and 1.40am and cash stolen from the till. Whoever was responsible escaped through a rear fire escape.

Anyone with information in relation to either crime is asked to contact Sergeant Roger Salmon at the South West Ipswich Safer Neighbourhood Team on 101.
