Businesses urged to stay vigilant after burglaries

Police are appealing for businesses to stay vigilant after four burglaries and attempted burglaries in the Lowestoft area.

Three incidents took place on Commercial Road in the town with business premises all targeted.

One business, reported to police at about 7.15am yesterday, Wednesday 17th February, was broken into but nothing stolen (CAD 34 of 17/2/21), while a second was broken into at around 10.30am with copper tubing and brass with an estimated value of £3,000 stolen (CAD 76 of 17/2/21).

The third incident was reported later in the day at about 2.30pm with a Citroen number plate stolen and a rear plate from a Ford Transit stolen (CAD 178 of 17/2/21).

Meanwhile, on Tuesday 16th February at approximately 6.30pm, on Belvedere Road a lock of a main gate was cut off with an angle grinder with a Ford transit van entering and a forklift and generator stolen (ref 37/8013/21).

Two suspects were seen at the time with the generator loaded into the Ford transit that entered the premises. The fork-lift has since been located in the Carlton Colville area and recovered. The generator remains outstanding.

Anyone who witnessed any suspicious behaviour, has knowledge of any of the incidents, knows who was responsible or knows the whereabouts of any of the items stolen should contact Lowestoft police on 101 quoting the relevant crime number.
