Commercial premises targeted by burglars in Hastings and Rother

19 May, 2017 12:01 News Witness Appeals

Police are appealing for information following recent break-ins at business premises, garages and commercial units in Hastings and Rother.

Two motorcycles - a red Honda CRF450R and a green Kawasaki KXF250, respectively numbered 13 and 44 - - were stolen from a caravan park in Hastings at around 1.30am on Saturday 13 May.

Power tools and machinery have been stolen from units and garages across the two districts, and in Bexhill-on-Sea safes in business premises have been broken into and, in some cases, removed by intruders.

Inspector Dan Russell, of the neighbourhood policing team, said: "We've unfortunately seen a recent rise in overnight break-ins, and are asking that if anyone sees or hears anything suspicious around commercial properties they should contact police immediately on 999."

Anyone with information about break-ins to date or what has become of stolen items is asked to contact us here
