Window smashed in village burglary


A large window was smashed at a village home during a burglary.

Police said a house was broken into in Meadowcroft Close, East Grinstead, between 5.50pm and 7.00pm on Monday, February 8.

A 48 inch curved Samsung television was stolen along with two Ipads and some costume jewellery.

Officers said an eagle-eyed neighbour saw a man running along Meadowcroft Close towards Heathcote Drive at this time.

He is described as black, aged 18 to 22, 5’11” to 6’ tall, of slim build and with short dark hair. He was wearing a dark coloured hooded top, jeans and training shoes.

Detective Constable Gavin Percival of the West Sussex Priority Crime Team said: “The TV would probably have required two people to carry it and although it was dark at the time many people would be returning home from work and may have seen something.

“If you did see anyone carrying such an item, know where it is now or have any other information that could assist, please contact us via or call 101, quoting serial 1312 of 09/02.

“Alternatively, call the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 (”
