Information sent on behalf of Sussex Police

Beauty Spot Thefts

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

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

There have been a number of beauty spot thefts from vehicles in the Wealden area.

What is a beauty spot? It's an area in the country side that is remote, and is often visited by walkers and dog walkers. The fact that these areas are quite isolated makes vehicles a target of thefts, especially in the summer months.

What advice can we give?
  • Whilst enjoying the sites keep your possessions with you instead of leaving them in the vehicle
  • Make use of of security products you may have such as steering locks
  • Register your belongings with immobilise
  • Remember to shut all windows and doors activating alarms
If you witness any suspicious behaviour report it to us via 101 or if there is a crime in action dial 999, giving us as much detail as possible such as time frames, vehicle registration numbers, the persons description etc.
