Information sent on behalf of Sussex Police

Thefts from vehicles have been reported in your neighbourhood

Police are warning Seaford residents to be on their guard following a spate of thefts from vehicles in the Lexden Drive area of the town in the early hours of Monday 5 February.  Approximately 6 vehicles were searched and some cash stolen and it is thought that this happened at about 2am when two males were disturbed. Sergeant Stuart Mullins of the Lewes District Prevention Team said, “ Most of the vehicles entered were insecure and I would urge all car owners to ensure that they always lock their vehicles, no matter where they are parked or for how long, even if they are on private driveways or in private car parks. Also never leave any valuables, bags or cash in your vehicles”. Anyone with any information regarding these or any other offences is asked to contact Sussex Police via 101 or Crimstoppers.

If you saw or heard anything, or have any information about the below incident please contact us online, email us at or call 101, quoting the reference number provided.

Alternatively you can contact the independent charity Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111, or online at
