Police are appealing for witnesses after jewellery worth thousands of pounds was stolen in a burglary in Seaford.
A home in Meads Road was broken into between 9.30am and 9pm on Saturday (November 16) after an intruder smashed a ground floor window while the residents were out.
Among the items taken were gold and diamond watches, gold rings, lockets, pendants and brooches, an Asus laptop and an iPad.
Sussex Police launched Operation Magpie to tackle burglary across the county.
Sergeant Stuart Mullins said: “There would have been lots of people in and around the Meads Road area when the burglary happened so the offender may have been seen before or after the break-in.
“We’re keen to speak to anyone who saw people acting suspiciously in the area on Saturday or the days beforehand. Have you had any suspicious callers in the last few days?
“You may have information that could be important to the investigation, even if it does not seem important to you.
“If you saw or heard anything, please contact us.”
Anyone with information should call 101 quoting serial 166 of 17/11, email email@example.com or call the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
