Police are appealing for witnesses after burglars broke into a garage in Eastbourne and stole a safe.
Between 6.15pm on January 19 and 8.15am on January 20, intruders broke into the business in Chamberlain Road and left with the dark green safe and its contents.
There was a report of people acting suspiciously in the area between 10pm and midnight and police are keen to speak to three people seen pushing a trolley with a large item in it towards Baldwin Avenue.
PC Dan Toft said, “Break-ins to businesses can have as much impact as a break-in to someone’s house, particularly when the business is family owned and managed. People’s livelihoods are being put at risk.
“I am keen to speak to anyone who witnessed any suspicious behaviour in the area that night to help us catch those responsible.
“If any business in Eastbourne has any concerns about security they shouldn’t hesitate to contact the local policing team and crime prevention advice can be arranged.”
Anyone with information should email firstname.lastname@example.org quoting serial 192 of 20/01, call 101 or contact the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
