THIEVES broke into two cars abandoned by the side of the road on Monday evening because of the snow.
The rear window of a red Ford Fiesta was smashed and a suitcase stolen from inside while it was left in Crowhurst Road, St Leonards, overnight on Monday (March 11). In the same road on the same night, a document wallet and Sat Nav were taken from a black Vauxhall Insignia.
PC Andy Lancaster, of Hastings response investigation team, said: “Someone has clearly taken advantage of the terrible weather and preyed on these two abandoned cars.”
