Electric drills were stolen after vans were targeted by burglars in early morning break-ins.

Burglars had entered and searched an insecure garage and shed at a home on Beccles Road, Carlton Colville in the early hours of Sunday, April 3.

However, nothing appears to have been stolen and instead a van at the home was targeted with a drill stolen from inside the vehicle.

A second "commercial vehicle" was broken into while parked on Beccles Road overnight on April 2/3 with an electric drill also stolen.

Police are seeking witnesses and are appealing for information in connection with the burglaries in Lowestoft.
