Police are appealing for witnesses after a home in St Hildas Close, Crawley, was broken into.

The front window of the house was smashed at some time before 7pm on (May 28) while the owners were out, police revealed today (June 16).

Officers think the break-in could be linked to burglaries in Applefield, Crawley, on May 23, and The Birches, Crawley, on May 6.

Gold jewellery, cash and an African grey parrot were stolen from the Applefield home. Jewellery was taken from the home in The Birches. It is not yet known exactly what has been stolen from St Hildas Close.

On each occasion a black Audi A3 was seen near the victims’ homes at the time of the break-in and officers are trying to trace that vehicle.

Detective Constable Jon Woolley said: “It may be a coincidence that a black Audi has been nearby on each occasion but it may not be.

“We would like to speak to anyone who may have seen a black Audi in the area, or anywhere in Crawley, with people acting suspiciously. If you have seen the car please contact us with any information you might have, no matter how insignificant you might consider it to be.”

Poice have also produced an efit of a man the would like to speak to in connection with the break-ins.

Anyone with information should call 101 quoting serial 1284 of 28/5, email or call the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
