Police are appealing for witnesses

Police have issued an appeal for witnesses to a burglary in Church Road, Yapton.

In a statement it said a 37-year-old man, the home owner, was woken by the sounds of someone trying to break into his garage where his car is kept at around 5.45am last Wednesday (February 22).

It appears as though the suspects have attempted to push the car, a classic beetle, out of the garage before they were disturbed by the victim, officers said, adding that some tools were stolen in the incident.

Anyone who was in the area at the time and saw anything suspicious is asked to report online via or call 101 quoting serial 126 of 22/02. Alternatively you can contact Crimestoppers anonymously via or call 0800 555 111.
