Police in Seaford are advising residents, especially those going on holiday, to be on their guard following two recent burglaries in the town.

A property in Upper Sherwood Road, Seaford was broken into sometime between Saturday, August 1 and Wednesday, August 12. A rear kitchen window was forced open and items including some jewellery, a laptop and tablet were taken.

There was also a burglary at a house in Southdown Road, Seaford sometime between 5pm on Tuesday, August 11 and 4pm on Wednesday, August 12. The owners returned to find marks on the rear patio doors and window frames suggesting someone had tried to force entry and the cat flap had been completely removed. A set of house keys were taken.

Sergeant Stuart Mullins said: “In this case it does not appear that the premises in Southdown Road was targeted because it had a cat flap, as other attempts had been made to force doors and windows.

“We advise anyone whose property does have a cat flap to make sure keys are not left within easy reach it.”

Witnesses to either incident are asked to email 101@sussex.pnn.police.uk or call 101 quoting reference 1081 of 12/8.

You can also call Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
