£2,000 wedding ring and BMW stolen in burglary

Police are appealing for witnesses to a burglary at a property in Dunclutha Road sometime between 10pm on Tuesday 21 May and 5.10am on May 22.

Thieves broke into the property via the back garden and stole a distinctive Zeiss watch with a white surround and black and chrome strap valued around £500, a white gold wedding band approximately £2000 along with two iPhones and a wallet. Not content with these items, they then helped themselves to the householder’s dark grey BMW which was found burnt out in Mill Lane, Hastings by police officers at 5:12am last Wednesday.

Sergeant Jason Tuck from the Priority Crime Team, said: “The items that were stolen were not only of high material value but also sentimental to the owners. I would remind people to be suspicious of anyone who may attempt to sell you either the jewellery or phones.

“Be neighbourly, if you notice someone hanging around or behaving in a way that makes you stop and think ‘why is that person here?’ please consider calling police so we can check that person out. Your call may prevent a crime from happening.

“If you have any information that could help police with the Dunclutha Road burglary, then please call 101 quoting serial 156 of 22/5 or alternatively leave an anonymous message with the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.”
