SUFFOLK Police are appealing for information after a robbery occurred at the Tomo Industrial Estate, Stowmarket today.

At around 12.30am three men armed with metal bars burst into the security hut and demanded that the security guard handed over the keys to the vehicles.

When they realised he didn't have them the offenders then bound the 58-year-old man with tape and took him in his own vehicle to the rear of the Depot where they left him. The victim was discovered around an hour later when he failed to respond to his check in call.

The security guard was left extremely shaken by his ordeal, but was not physically injured and did not require hospital treatment.

The offenders stole a blue Volvo SL10 tractor unit, registration: K736 GPW with a trailer which is a yellow curtain sided trailer with the words Bacton Transport printed on the side. There was a consignment of toys on board.

Police are still trying to establish exact details of what was stolen and will release further details when they become available.

The offenders who are described as white males, all wearing balaclavas and dark coloured jeans, are described as:

N Male one, around 5ft 4in tall, stocky build

N Male two, around 5ft. 11in tall, slim build

N Male three, around 5ft 6in tall, stock build, wearing a tan coloured zip-up fleece top.

Police are appealing for anyone who may have witnessed any suspicious activity in the area at the time or have any information in connection with the stolen trailer to come forward.

Anyone with information should contact DC John Dolan, Stowmarket Police Station, on 01284 774100, or Crimestoppers on Freephone 0800 555 111.
