Military medals among items stolen in broad daylight burglaries in Caister
A pair of cherished war medals were among a large array of items stolen in broad daylight in two break-ins which took place in Caister this week.
Police are on the hunt for two men in connection with the two separate burglaries, in which homes in the village were broken into around lunchtime on two different days.
The first incident saw a large number of electrical appliances stolen from a home in Marine Drive, believed to have happened between 12.30pm and 1.15pm on Sunday, April 2.
Suspects forced their way into the home through a rear door and once inside stole several electrical items - a television, a DVD player, a tablet, a mobile phone and a laptop. They also took some bottles of perfume and sets of bedding.
With these items, the burglars also took two military medals which were being kept at the home.
