Sussex Police said in a statement that two of the men came from Maresfield and the other from Hurstpierpoint.

Sergeant Amy Mason of the Uckfield Neighbourhood Policing Team said: “These arrests and charges are an excellent result. Officers from across various departments have been working together to bring this series (of burglaries) to a quick resolution.

“During the investigations police knocked on several hundred doors in a bid to find witnesses and give crime prevention advice and home security. Residents will be pleased to know that the area has seen an instant decline in burglary.

“Police would like to take this opportunity to urge residents to report any activity, which they deem to be suspicious, especially so when it comes to vehicles or people acting suspiciously around residential properties.”
