Worthing suffers yet more break-ins

FOLLOWING a spate of shop break-ins over the Christmas and new year period, thieves have struck at two more stores in Worthing town centre.

It happened on Friday, February 10, and police are appealing to anyone who may have witnessed anything suspicious happening.

It is believed that the burglars broke into Julian Graves in Warwick Street in order to gain access to the Feast sandwich shop, which was next door, to steal the safe.

The break-ins are thought to have happened at about 10.40pm.

Detectives would particularly like to hear from anyone who saw up to three people wheeling a white washing machine-sized object along Warwick Street.

A police spokesman said: “We are hoping that by releasing this information it might jog someone’s memory.

“If you were in the area at the time and saw something unusual, then we would ask you to pick up the phone and contact police as soon as possible, quoting serial 0209 of February 10.”

Other stores previously broken into include H.G. Scadgell in Montague Street, and Costa Coffee in Montague Place.
