Man in court over car and tool thefts

A 23-year-old man accused of stealing cars worth more than £3,000 from houses in Kersey and Hadleigh has appeared in court.

Stuart McConnachie is alleged to have stolen a Ford Fiesta, valued at £2,000, from a garage in Hadleigh, and a Subaru Impreza, worth £1,150, from Kersey in February this year.

McConnachie, of Upper Street, Witnesham, is also charged with stealing power tools, petrol and alcohol.

He gave no plea at Bury St Edmunds Magistrates’ Court last Tuesday.

McConnachie is due at Ipswich Crown Court on December 21.
