Detectives from West Sussex are seeking help from victims of burglary to identify some property recovered from a suspected burglar’s house back in May.
More than 50 items, including jewellery, antiques and work tools, have been photographed and uploaded to the Sussex Police website in a bid to reunite them with their rightful owners.
Detective Constable Lindsey Van Buiten, who is overseeing Operation Borden said: “We believe that the majority of this property has come from houses located in villages close to the A272 in West Sussex.
“Some of the items are of little monetary value but are very distinctive and the owner may recognise something of theirs that was of great sentimental value.
“If you have been a victim of burglary in the last few months and live in a village near the A272 please view the property on-line by clicking http://property.Sussex-police.co.uk
and if you recognise any items then call 101 and quote Op Bordon and we will investigate. If you don’t have Internet access or need any assistance then please still call 101 quoting Op Bordon and we will be in touch.”
Police recovered most of the items from a property in Worthing. Three people have been arrested on suspicion of burglary and bailed until July 10.
This is the third time Sussex Police have decided to upload recovered stolen items to the police website in a bid to reunite them with their rightful owners.
