Rewards totalling £4000 have been offered in the hunt for two men suspected of being involved in 70 high-value burglaries across seven counties - including Norfolk and Suffolk.

Matthew Bryan, aged 25, and Lee Heane, aged 26, are suspected of being involved in the raids over the past five months. They included 12 burglaries in Norfolk and 9 in Suffolk.

The charity Crimestoppers is now offering rewards of up to £2,000 for information that leads to each of their arrest.

The pair are believed to be staying in hotels or B&Bs and are known to have criminal associates in the Kent area, particularly Margate, Ramsgate and Broadstairs.

Liam Duffy, Crimestoppers’ Regional Manager, said: “Burglary is a crime that causes immense distress to victims, which is why it is always taken so seriously. Not only is it the shock of having intruders in your own home, but it is the theft of sentimental items that can be particularly traumatic.

“We ask anyone who might know the whereabouts of Bryan or Heane to contact us anonymously by phone on 0800 555 111 or online at Crimestoppers-uk.org. No-one will ever know that you spoke to us and you will never have to give a statement to police or go to court.”

If you have any information, please contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 or through our Anonymous Online Form at crimestoppers-uk.org
