Police are warning residents in Seaford to be on their guard following a series of house burglaries overnight from Tuesday (November 10) to Wednesday (November 11).

A number of properties with integral garages attached to their homes were targeted with the intruders using the connecting doors from the garages to get into the homes in the Aquilla Park, Wellington Park and Hartfield Road area of the town.

Car keys were stolen from a house in Hartfield Road and a Honda Jazz car stolen.

Sergeant Stuart Mullins said: “We are warning all residents with garages to make sure that the external doors are closed and secure at all times. Those that live in newer builds with integral garages would seem to be particularly at risk and if you live in such a property please make sure that any internal door to the house is locked.”

These offences are possibly linked with other recent similar burglaries in the Newhaven and Peacehaven areas.

Anyone with any information about the Seaford burglaries or other offences in the area are asked to contact police by emailing 101@sussex.pnn.police.ukor ring 101 quoting serial 0223 of 11/11.
