A newsagents in Eye was burgled in the early hours of Monday morning.
The incident happened at about 4.10am at the Martin McColl store in Church Street.
Two men used what is believed to be a sledgehammer to gain entry to the premises. Cigarettes were stolen from within and the men left, driving away in a silver-coloured Volvo.
There are no further descriptions of the offenders.
Anyone who witnessed the incident or has information is asked to call Suffolk Police on 101, or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
Police are linking the crime to one that happened in Halesworth on the same morning.
Eight bronze sculptures were stolen from a shop in Market Place between 2.40am and 2.50am.
Residents in the area were woken by banging noises, and looked out to see a vehicle leaving in the Metfield direction.
The premises had been broken into and the sculptures and a grey and blue cash tin had been stolen.
The bronzes include a large hare, a springer spaniel with a duck, a robin in flight, a dog chewing a shoe, rutting stags and a running lurcher dog.
It’s thought two men were involved in the incident and that the vehicle may have been an old-style Volvo estate.
Anyone who saw anything suspicious in the early hours or anyone with information about where the sculptures are now or who took them, should call PC 1638 Barber at Suffolk Police on 101 or Crimestoppers, anonymously if required, on 0800 555 111.
