Crimestoppers offers reward of up to £1000 for information on burglaries in rural villages north of Bury St Edmunds

Monday 21 March 2016

We are today offering a reward of up to £1,000 for information on those responsible for a spate of burglaries in villages to the north of Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk.

Since January this year, 13 burglaries or attempted burglaries have happened across rural villages near Bury St Edmunds.  Despite a significant increase in police activities across the villages, these crimes are still occurring.

We are now offering a reward of up to £1,000 for information given to the charity that leads to the arrest and charge of any individuals that are responsible for burglary in the Bury St Edmunds area.*

Antonia Litten, Eastern Regional Manager for Crimestoppers, said: “There are people out there who know who is responsible for these burglaries and I would urge you to contact Crimestoppers.

“We don’t take personal details and we can’t trace information given online or on the phone. We don’t want to know who you are, just what you know. You won’t even have to give up your identity to claim your reward.”

Residents should ensure their homes and properties are secure by taking simple precautions such as securing gates and fully locking doors. Further crime prevention tips can be found on the Suffolk Constabulary website.

If you have any information, please contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 or through the Anonymous Online Form.

*Note: The reward will only qualify if information is passed to Crimestoppers’ 0800 555 111 number or anonymous online form. Information passed directly to police will not qualify for the full amount.
