Have your say

Police have issued an appeal after an alleged burglary in Seaford was caught on a ‘doorbell camera’.

The footage from the unusual security device appears to shows the man entering the porch area of the house in Valley Drive at 10.51pm on Sunday (February 12).

A minute later, police say, the internet router located in the porch was unplugged, but not before the video captured the images.

Police say the owner of the house noticed that the door was open the following morning and then discovered their white Apple AirPort Time Capsule 2Tb router – worth around £233 – was missing. Police say nothing else had been taken from the porch and no attempt appears to have been made to enter the main house.

The man is described as white, in his late teens or early 20s, with blonde or light-coloured hair and with a stud type earring.

He was wearing a Parka-style coat, with a light tracksuit top underneath and was carrying a rucksack.

Anyone who recognises him or has any information about the burglary or the item stolen is asked to report online at https://sussex.police.uk/contact-us/response-to-appeal/ quoting serial 46 of 13/02.
