Police are hunting a thief who stole a four-figure cash sum during a spate of car break-ins in the Chantry area of Ipswich.

All the incidents occurred between 8pm on Saturday and 9.30am on Sunday.

One of the break-ins occurred in Didsbury Close where a laptop bag was stolen from a Ford Mondeo.

However, there was no laptop inside and the bag was found discarded a short distance away.

Another break-in happened in Ratcliffe Drive where a sat nav valued at £65 and a Samsung Galaxy Android camera valued at £400 were taken.

The four-figure cash sum was stolen from a Nissan in Annbrook Road, along with some baby clothes.

Police have declined to specify exactly how much money was taken, but it is understood to be a low four-figure sum.
