Thieves smashed their way into a village GP surgery and raided the till – but left shelves of medication untouched.

CCTV captured two people breaking into the Constable Country Rural Medical Practice, in The Street, Capel St Mary, on Saturday March 28 at 11.50pm.

Pete Keeble, the practice manager, said he was sure the pair knew what they were after as they knew the layout of the surgery and attached pharmacy.

“They went straight into the pharmacy and went for the till, taking what they wanted,” he explained.

“They smashed through the glass front door which has a wire mesh in.”

While the front door to the surgery has been boarded up, Mr Keeble is confused why the pair didn’t take any of the easily accessible medication.

He added: “We had full alarm systems, which rang straight through to police, and CCTV but unfortunately those didn’t deter them.”

Suffolk police have confirmed that enquiries are ongoing and any witnesses should contact them by quoting CAD reference 379 of 28 March 2020.
