A man scared off a pair of burglars after he saw them in his house.

Police have appealed for help tracing the culprits following the crime at an address on the B1116, the main road between Fressingfield and Weybread.

Officers said the man saw two people in his house just before 9pm.

He shouted out to them and they fled the scene via a side gate. Police later discovered a jewellery box with its contents discarded near the property, which had been taken from inside the home.

Police believe the incident may be linked to a second burglary at an address in Laxfield, near Station Road, which happened some time between 10.30am on Sunday, April 16 and 10.30am on Tuesday, April 18. Entry was forced to the rear of the house and jewellery along with a quantity of cash, including foreign currency, was stolen.
