SERIES OF CAR BREAKS: in Polegate may be linked. Police are warning residents in Wealden, and in particular in Polegate, not to leave cars insecure overnight and to ensure they remove everything of value from inside. This follows a series of incidents around the village this week.

Between the evening of Tuesday (June 20) and Wednesday (June 21)a total of 10 incidents were reported. In many cases cash was stolen and other losses include an iPad, iPhone and CDs. In all cases there were obvious signs of a messy search of the cars’ interior, including inside gloveboxes. The roads targeted were Bramely Road, Dittons Road, Buttercup Drive, Kensington Way, Levett Avenue, Highgrove Crescent, Glynleigh Drive and Sunflower Lane. In one incident three cars were all broken into whilst parked on the owner’s driveway with the episode caught on CCTV. The images showed two male youths wearing hoodies, one of which was exceptionally long and similar to a coat with a hood, which may be significant.
