Ipswich – appeal to locate owners of suspected stolen tools

Police are releasing images of power tools, tools and other items they believe may have been stolen that were found in a vehicle that failed to stop for officers in Ipswich.

At around 11.30am Wednesday 13 April a black Audi A3 failed to stop for officers in Raeburn Road, Ipswich. Officers followed the vehicle before the driver decamped in Landseer Road.

The suspected driver, a 17-year-old male from Ipswich, was later arrested in the town and taken to Martlesham Police Investigation Centre for questioning. He was arrested on suspicion of failing to stop when directed, dangerous driving, driving without insurance, handling stolen goods, and aggravated vehicle taking. He has since been bailed to return to police on 7 May.

Another man was arrested later that day in Raeburn Road. The 19-year-old man from Ipswich was arrested on suspicion of handling stolen goods and assault of a police officer and taken to Martlesham Police Investigation Centre. He was also bailed to return on 7 May.

A number of men were seen around the vehicle before it drove off and failed to stop for officers.

Police are appealing for any possible witnesses to the incident or anyone who may have any information regarding the vehicle, those involved, or information about the suspected stolen goods.

Officers have released images of a number of items found that they believe may have been stolen from within Suffolk or neighbouring counties.
