A series of thefts from unattended and unlocked vehicles in Seaford on Tuesday night (June 21) has prompted police to urge car and van owners to take extra care over security.

Sussex Police say at least four vehicles parked in the areas of Surrey Road, Friston Close and Marine Parade were targeted by thieves who stole various items from them, including cash, sunglasses and a satellite navigation system.

Sergeant Stuart Mullins, of Seaford police, said: “It appears that most if not all of these vehicles were left unlocked and none showed any signs of being broken into.

“I would urge all vehicle owners to make sure that they lock their cars at all times when they are left unattended, even when parked on private driveways, and to remove any valuables from inside them.”

Anyone with any information about the thefts or who saw anyone acting suspiciously in the area is asked to email officers at 101@sussex.pnn.police.uk or phone 101, quoting serial 232 of 22/06.

Alternatively they can contact the independent charity Crimestopppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 or visit www.crimestoppers-uk.org to report their information online.
