Words of Wisdom
 
Over the last few weeks, Sussex Police have received more than average calls from members of the public from across both East and West Sussex, reporting that garages, outbuildings and work vehicles had been broken into. In these break-ins power tools are being stolen, such as electric drills, chain saws, strimmer’s, hedge cutters etc.
Sadly, when we ask the aggrieved for the serial of the stolen goods, in the vast majority of cases, they do not have them. As a result, if we stop a suspect and they have goods in their possession that match yours we cannot prove that they are yours so unless the suspect admits they are stolen we have to give them back to the suspect.
So please make a note of the make, model and serial numbers of all your equipment, the register it free of charge on the Immobilise website
