A Seaford business had thousands of pounds worth of children’s toys stolen and a neighbouring property was broken into during two burglaries in the town.
Between 4pm on Sunday (February 16) and 8.50am today (Monday) Red Rooster I.T in the High Street and Toytown next door were targeted after a door to flats at the back was forced open.
The intruders entered the I.T shop through a window and carried out an untidy search before making a hole through an internal wall in a communal entrance hall to get into the toy shop. They forced open the till and stole approximately £900 in cash as well as Lego and Sylvanian Family toys valued at thousands of pounds. It is not clear at this stage if anything was taken from the I.T business.
PC Duncan Ford of Sussex Police said, “It is possible that the offenders used a vehicle to remove the stolen toys which are all boxed and brand new. If anybody saw any suspicious activity in the vicinity of the properties on Sunday evening or overnight, especially at the rear, we would like to hear from them.
“If you are offered any new boxed Lego or Sylvanian toys or know anybody who has suddenly acquired quantities of them please call us on 101 or call Crimestoppers.”
