Christmas presents stolen in Seaford burglary

Swarovski crystal earrings and a pair of black leather gloves were among Christmas presents stolen from a property in Seaford.

Police are appealing for information after the home in Cuckmere Road was targeted sometime between 11am on Christmas Eve and 3pm on Friday December 27, after a rear kitchen door was forced.

A number of distinctive items were stolen in the burglary. These included four replica watches -a Panerai Marina with a stainless steel strap, an IWC Big pilot watch with a black face and strap, a Hublot with a black face and gold coloured bezel and a Frank Miller with a square shaped black face and a gold bezel. Although copies, these are thought to be worth several hundred pounds.

Also stolen was about £50 in one pound coins, as well as a quantity of wrapped Christmas presents. These included a pair of Swarovski crystal earrings, a Swarovski crystal necklace, a ‘Tea Pigs’ teapot, a pair of black leather gloves, an Iphone car connector, a ‘Toys R Us’ book of faces, and a Bayliss and Harding tower. The total value of these items is approximately £415.

Sergeant Stuart Mullins said, “The items stolen are quite identifiable, and taken as a whole pretty unique.

“If anybody tries to give you or sell you any similar items please contact us via 101 or email 101@sussex.pnn.police.uk quoting serial 0946 of 27/12, or the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111. The thieves tried to ruin someone’s Christmas so perhaps we can now spoil their New Year.”
