Police are appealing for help following a robbery, which was committed earlier this year.

On April 12, 2016 several people went to an address in Swift Close, Carlton Colville and forced their way into the home before stealing items of jewellery.

Officers made an arrest on the case within three hours of when it occurred, at 11pm that night. A number of inquiries were then made and the 24-year-old man arrested, who is from Colchester in Essex, was bailed for further work to be carried out.

A police spokesman said: 'Officers, and those targeted, believe there may be those who know what happened that night who have not come forward and detectives investigating the robbery incident are making an appeal for anyone who may have information to get in touch.'

? Call Lowestoft CID on 101 quoting crime number 27671/16, or Crimestoppers, anonymously if required, on 0800 555 111.
