Around £21,000 worth of equestrian equipment has been stolen from a Suffolk shop.

The burglary of Farriers Choice in Oaks Drive, Newmarket happened overnight between March 14-15.

Significant damage was caused to both doors to the building during the break-in and glass was smashed in the office.

An untidy search was carried out and a large quantity of farrier tools and equestrian equipment worth around £21,000 was taken.

A spokesman for Suffolk Constabulary said: “Officers are keen to speak to anyone who may have recently been sold any farrier or equestrian equipment in strange or suspicious circumstances.”

Anyone with information that could assist police with their investigation is asked to call 101, quoting crime reference 37/14080/18.
