Between 11.10pm on Monday and 7am on Tuesday a house in Green Oak Glade in the Pinewood area of the town was entered.

The culprits then stole a Samsung 42in plasma TV, a Sony handheld digital video camera, a Canon digital camera, a Toshiba laptop computer, a passport, a handbag, some Wii games and DVDs.

Then between 12.30pm on Monday and 10am on Tuesday a garage in Chapel Lane, Belstead, was broken into and a blue-cream coloured Yamaha moped, index F78 NGV, and a black open-faced helmet were taken from inside.

The two burglaries have been linked by Suffolk police. It follows a spate of burglaries from insecure homes in Hadleigh earlier this week.

A spokeswoman for Suffolk police said: “Community intelligence is vital and people should report any suspicious activity to us.
