Seaford police are advising residents to review their home security after a burglary in Homefield Road on Thursday (July 10).

The premises are thought to have been broken into between July 1 and July 10 while the occupants were away.

Entry was gained after a rear window was smashed and it is thought that the offenders stole money and jewellery.

Sergeant Stuart Mullins said, “We are advising all residents that it may be worth reviewing their security, especially if they are planning on going away.

“Make sure that you have adequate door and window locks and don’t leave any items outside that could be used by an opportunistic thief to force entry to your house.

“Ask a neighbour, relative or friend to check the house regularly and clear up any mail and try to not make it too obvious that the premises are unoccupied.”

Additional crime prevention advice can be given by the police if needed. Contact is via 101 or email 101@sussex.pnn.police.uk.

Also if you are at home and see anything suspicious at your neighbours’ houses, contact the police immediately, using the 999 emergency number if necessary.
