ADVICE
As you will be well aware, more and more Quadbikes are being stolen in Sussex, in particular East Sussex where 3 more have gone this week. 5 more caravans have been stolen this week. We have suggested on many occasions that Quadbike and similar type vehicles should be fitted with trackers, perhaps if you own a caravan you should also consider having one fitted. On several occasions in recent weeks Sussex Police have managed to recover stolen vehicles fitted with such devices, not only that but they have managed to apprehend the thief.
 
So please, please help Sussex Police to help you by fitting your valuable vehicles with trackers.
 

Your help required please
 
Sussex Police rely heavily on people like you to advise them of any suspect vehicle hanging around of entering you property. Please, if you see any such vehicle contact the police on the non-emergency number 101 with as much information as possible. This includes date and time, where and a good description of the vehicle including the reg no and of any people. Please do not put yourself in any danger but if possible take a photograph.
Thank you in advance for your help.
