Business owners are being reminded to review their security following two burglaries at cafés in the town last week.

The first break in occurred at a business address along The Walk, at some point overnight on Monday, September 25 into Tuesday, September 26. A safe containing a quantity of cash was stolen.

Police were called to the second incident shortly after 5.10am on Thursday, September 28, following reports a brick had been thrown through a window of a business address in Hungate. Nothing is thought to have been stolen at this time.

Suffolk Police are reminding business owners to ensure alarm systems are regularly maintained and always set when the premises are closed. Advice regarding alarms can be found at https://www.suffolk.police.uk/sites/suffolk/files/alarm_systems.pdf or https://www.suffolk.police.uk/sites/suffolk/files/alarms_policy.pdf

Other advice includes removing charity boxes from display overnight, fitting grilles or shutters to windows, doors and high risk display cabinets, making maximum use of cash management systems and safes and regularly reviewing security measures.
