Thieves have ram-raided a petrol station in Framlingham overnight.

Officers were called just before 12:30am to reports of an alarm sounding at a petrol station in Station Road and a car driving off at high speed.

Police attended the scene to find a black Mercedes had been reversed at speed into a side wall of the station shop, causing a large hole. The offenders had then gained entry and stolen cigarettes and tobacco before making off in another vehicle.

The ram raid is being linked to a burglary at a property in Burstall on the evening of Thursday 3 October where a black Mercedes and a black Audi were stolen from the driveway.

The black Audi was reported alight in Copdock by the fire service at around 1:15am.

Anyone who has any information in relation to either incident or who may have seen the vehicles at any time during the evening is asked to contact Leiston CID on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
