A LARGE amount of music equipment was stolen from a summer house.

Crooks broke into the rear of the outbuilding in The Greenway, Clacton overnight between last Thursday and Friday.

Once inside they took two black amplifiers, two record decks, two CD decks, a specialist DJ laptop and a mixer.

Investigating officer PC Nikki Heath said:”The owners have spent a lot of time and effort with their summerhouse and I would ask anyone who knows who is responsible for this crime or has had someone try to sell them items like this to get in touch.”

Anyone with information should contact PC Heath at Clacton police station on 101.
