Warnings shared on Facebook about Uckfield thieves

Victims of crime are taking to Facebook to appeal for help in tracking down stolen property and to warn others of thieves operating in the Uckfield area.

Yesterday on Uckfield Talk Helen English who went for a walk at the Rocks area with a friend said they returned to their cars to find a window smashed and purse stolen while they were away.

By the time they realised what had happened a bank card had been used in shops seven times.

Helen said the police had suggested they asked the shops if they had CCTV to see if they could find out who had used the card. She went to two of them but they weren’t much help.

On Saturday Sarah Britt posted in the Uckfield Crime Facebook group – set up by Uckfield News to track crime in the Uckfield area – that her 15-year-old son’s motocross bike, and her husband’s new mountain bike were stolen from Five Ash Down.

Have you seen them? Pictures are below.
