Appeal Crime Prevention Advice

Alert message sent 15/07/2019 16:22:00

Information sent on behalf of Sussex Police



Police are investigating the theft of 29 high-value saxophones, worth several thousands of pounds, stolen during a break-in at Saxophones UK's  premises in Farningham Road, Crowborough, between Saturday night and Sunday morning (13/14 July).
Intruders are thought to have forced their way into the warehouse between 11.30pm and 3.45am when alarms sounded.
Officers investigating the burglary have not ruled out the possibility that it may be linked to earlier thefts and attempted break-ins at the premises, when again thousands of pounds worth of instruments were targeted.
Sergeant Amy Mason, of Wealden police, said: " We would like to hear from anyone who may have seen or heard suspicious activity on the night of the crime, or who recalls seeing anything usual in the area in the days leading up to it."
They are asked to contact Sussex Police by phoning 101, quoting serial 248 of 14/07. Alternatively they can contact the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
Crime Prevention Advice

Over the weekend we have seen a rise in the report of theft from cars.
Some of these have been because folks have left their vehicle insecure but others are due to the fact that personal belongings have been left on view such as purses and wallets.
The fallout from losing items such as these is huge - you have to cancel your cards and contactless payments can mean you may lose money from your bank account.
Please remember to lock your vehicle and please take your items with you.
