Thieves steal adult toys from doorstep

THIEVES who stole a package from outside an Ipswich home may have got more than they bargained for as the owner has revealed the box was full of adult toys.

THIEVES who stole a package from outside an Ipswich home may have got more than they bargained for as the owner has revealed the box was full of adult toys.

A pair of crooks swiped the parcel from the rear doorstep of Denise Day's Nansen Road home, in the Racecourse area of the town.

However, perhaps unknown to the criminals, Mrs Day is an Ann Summers party organiser and the parcel contained more than £500 worth of vibrators and raunchy lingerie.

Mrs Day, 41, said she struggled to imagine what use the thieves, described as two males wearing “hoodies”, would have for the contents of the box.

She said: “I think it will be quite difficult for them to sell them on if that's what they intend to do.

“It is not like the kind of thing that you can knock on someone's door and try to sell.”

Mrs Day, who has been working for the company for the past three years and holds two to three parties a week, said the thieves had been caught on a neighbours' CCTV camera.

She said: “I've spoken to the delivery firm and they say the driver saw a couple of people coming down the road when he delivered the parcel.

“The CCTV footage shows them go around the back of the house to have a quick look before coming back a few minutes later and taking it.

“They wouldn't have had time to find out what was inside before they took it.”

The box, stolen last Tuesday, contained 20 vibrators and 19 other products including lingerie and love lotions.

Mrs Day is keen for the culprits to be caught and Suffolk police officers are due to examine the camera footage.

Anyone with information on the theft is asked to contact police on 01473 613500.
