Over 100 Items Seized From Home Of Suspected Burglar In Burgess Hill
2nd October 2014
Last Saturday evening, we received reports from residents of Chanctonbury Road of a very significant police presence, with multiple vehicles and officer numbers in double figures on the scene. They were seen looking in the gardens of properties and essentially had the area on lock-down. Officers were then spotted wearing blue gloves, removing items from a bin. Nobody was really sure what exactly was going on. A drugs raid was the popular assumption.
It's taken 5 days, but Burgess Hill Police have now revealed what they were doing on Saturday via their Facebook page....

Over 100 items were seized that are suspected to have been stolen in burglaries in the Burgess Hill and Hassocks area.?
So now you know. Maybe there was a 'Track my iPad' app installed that may have led the Police to the home?
