Two masked burglars were forced to flee the scene of a break-in after a neighbour caught them in the act last night.
The pair fled after breaking into an outbuilding in Church Road, Wortham, at around 8.30pm on Tuesday.
The balaclava-clad burglars sped off in a silver Vauxhall Vectra with a stolen Ifor Williams trailer attached after a resident heard a noise and investigated further, according to police.
The trailer was carrying a stolen child’s motocross bike and pressure washer, and was later found abandoned near to the A143.
Plant equipment, power tools and a number of radio-controlled cars; a VW Beetle, monster truck, Army Jeep, Ford Focus and Ford Mustang, were also stolen and have not been recovered.
Anyone with information relating to this crime should contact PC Carly Bignell from Stowmarket quoting ST/15/3500 on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
