Mobility scooter stolen from elderly man’s garage in Peacehaven


A burglar stole a red mobility scooter and £20 worth of frozen meals from a garage in Peacehaven.

The building in Friars Avenue was broken into overnight between 9.30pm on Saturday August 31 and Sunday September 1.

PC Anna Batchelor said: “The elderly occupant had only bought the scooter in the last month to help him stay independent.

“He has been left particularly upset by this incident and I am appealing for any information which will lead to the recovery of his scooter.”

Anyone with information should call Sussex Police on the non emergency number 101 quoting serial 506 of 1 September or the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
