Pair of attempted burglaries at Hadleigh properties may be connected
Two Hadleigh properties were targeted in quick succession in a pair of attempted burglaries earlier this week, which police believe may be connected.
A pair of offenders tried to force their way into a property in Tower Mill Lane, some time between 11.20pm and 11.30pm on Wednesday, by smashing a back-door window.
The offenders, who were of a similar height and were both wearing dark-coloured hooded tops, were then disturbed by the occupant and subsequently fled the scene, heading in the direction of the town centre.
It is understood that nothing was stolen.
Shortly afterwards, a number of offenders attempted to break into the garage of a property in Highlands Road, at around 11.55pm.
The property owner heard a garage door being opened and went to investigate, prompting the offenders to flee, running through gardens in the street before heading towards Hadleigh town centre.
The offenders were described as standing around five feet eight inches tall and being of slim build.
They were both wearing dark-coloured tracksuits, while their faces were covered.
Suffolk Police believes the two incidents may be linked, and has appealed for anyone who has information about either incident to come forward.
If you can help the investigation, call 101, quoting the reference number 37/27716/20 for the incident in Tower Mill Lane or 37/27718/20 for the incident in Highlands Road.
