Police issue stepladder appeal over Downham burglaries

Police investigating three burglaries in Downham have appealed for anyone who may have seen a person carrying a stepladder around the time of the incidents to come forward.

Officers say three commercial properties in the town centre were targeted overnight on January 20 or 21.

It is believed a stepladder was taken from the first building and then used to gain access to the others.

Cash, a metal bench and a vintage door were also among the items taken in the raids.

A Norfolk Police spokesman said this morning: "Officers are particularly interested to hear from anyone who may have seen a person(s) walking around Downham Market High Street, Paradise Road, or Bridge Street overnight carrying a 8-10ft stepladder."

Anyone with information or CCTV or dashcam footage is asked to contact PC Andy Smith at Downham police station on 101, quoting reference number 36/5043/20.

The appeal comes just a day after residents in West Norfolk were warned to be vigilant following a string of burglaries in villages near Downham.
