Burglars spoil Christmas after stealing presents from Seaford home

Heartless burglars stole presents from a Seaford home during Christmas.

They forced the kitchen door open at the house in Cuckmere Road between 11am on Christmas Eve and 3pm on Friday December 27.

A number of distinctive items were stolen, including four replica watches: a Panerai Marina with a stainless steel strap, an IWC Big pilot watch with a black face and strap, a Hublot with a black face and gold coloured bezel and a Frank Miller with a square shaped black face and a gold bezel.

Although copies, police said these watches were thought to be worth several hundred pounds.

Also stolen was about £50 in one pond coins, as well as a quantity of wrapped Christmas presents.

These included a pair of Swarovski crystal earrings, a Swarovski crystal necklace, a Tea Pigs teapot, a pair of black leather gloves, an Iphone car connector, a Toys R Us book of faces, and a Bayliss and Harding tower.

The total value of these items is about £415.

Sergeant Stuart Mullins said: “The items stolen are quite identifiable, and taken as a whole pretty unique.

“If anybody tries to give you or sell you any similar items please contact us via 101 or email 101@sussex.pnn.police.uk quoting serial 0946 of 27/12, or the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.

“The thieves tried to ruin someone’s Christmas so perhaps we can now spoil their New Year.”
