BURGLARS broke into a garage after forcing a door lock and smashing a wooden panel.
Nothing was stolen from the property in Station Road, Hellingly, – it is believed the suspects were disturbed.
Wealden police advise everybody to check their outbuildings and garages for possible weak areas.
A police spokesman said: “It is always good to remember that you can spend hundreds on a good padlock, but with weak hinges or an old insecure window this is wasted money.”
