Four men have been arrested over the theft of duty free items from Gatwick Airport.

Sussex Police said the arrests were made as part of a long-running investigation into the theft of duty free goods from the airport.

The men – who are all contract workers – were arrested at the airport on Tuesday (September 2) after property which was believed to have been stolen was recovered.

A 23-year-old from Crawley, a 22-year-old from Rye, a 36-year-old from Oxted in Surrey, and a 57-year-old from St Leonards were arrested on suspicion of theft by employee and were bailed until November 3 while investigations continue.

Chief Inspector Andy Kundert said: “These arrests are part of a long-running investigation into the theft of duty free goods from the airport.

“There is no suggestion that passengers have been targeted and we are working with Gatwick Airport Limited and airline operators to tackle the issue of theft and to catch those responsible.”
