Investigations are underway following two burglaries in Ipswich, which are being linked by police.
The incidents happened on Bramford Lane yesterday and police are appealing to anyone who may have seen any suspicious activity in the area.
The first incident took place at a home between 10.15am and 1.15pm when the resident returned to find she had been burgled.
Thieves got in through a back dining room window which had been smashed.
A messy search of the home had taken place with drawers and cupboards opened and the contents turned out, and the shed in the back garden was also broken into. It is currently unclear what was stolen.
