Fresh appeal following a spate of thefts from cars in Worlingham

Police are renewing appeals for information following a spate of thefts from vehicles in Worlingham

An appeal was issued on Monday, August 1, after a black wallet, containing cash and cards, and an MP3 player were stolen after someone gained entry to a black Ford car parked at Janet Hadenham Close between 8pm on Sunday, July 31 and 7.45am on Monday.

At that stage police were linking the theft with another that happened at Park Drive where a satellite navigation system was taken from a Honda car overnight the same night.

Officers are now also linking several other incidents including the theft of property from a caravan at Hornbeam Close and the theft of a trailer from a driveway at Park Drive both overnight Sunday into Monday.

Two men, believed to be in their mid to late teens, wearing hooded tops, were seen with the trailer at Lowestoft Road in Worlingham but they made off leaving the trailer behind. This was later recovered and found to contain the vast majority of the property stolen from the caravan at Hornbeam Close.
