POLICE WARNING AFTER SEAFORD CAR THEFTS
October 28 2013.
Police are warning motorists not to leave valuables on display after two cars were targeted in Seaford. A Mercedes E Class car had its rear nearside window smashed when it was parked in Carlton Road between 8.00pm on 23 October and 8.00am the next morning. A leather bag was stolen containing a small Sony digital camera and a Lieta measuring unit, used for surveying, valued at £600.
At 10.00am the same morning in Marine Parade thieves attempted to break into a white Vauxhall Astra van, knocking the door handle off. Nothing was stolen but two men, who drove off in a dark blue Vauxhall Vectra, were seen. They are described as white, about 25 years old and one was wearing a hoodie, the other a hat.
Sergeant Stuart Mullins said: "We want motorists to stop and think about what is on display before they leave thier cars.
"Anything of value is a prime target for an opportunist thief. If anyone has any information about these two incidents I would ask them to contact police on 101 or email firstname.lastname@example.org quoting 0382 24/10 or call the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111."
