Police are appealing for witnesses to a series of burglaries in Roffey after 12 garages were broken into last week.

The garages, in The Pines, Beech Road and Sycamore Avenue, were broken into around 1.30pm on Wednesday (13 August).

The incident saw a number of bicycles stolen and an attempt was also made to break into a house in Church Road.

A 17-year-old boy and a 19-year-old man from Horsham have been arrested and questioned on suspicion of criminal damage. Another 17-year-old boy was arrested and questioned on suspicion of burglary.

All three teenagers have been released on bail until 18 September.

Sergeant Chris O’Leary said: “Although we have made three arrests we’d still like to speak to people that might have information about what happened.

“We would like to find anyone who was in the area who might have seen or heard anything, or anyone who has seen groups of young men in the area riding away on bikes.

“Members of the local community have been very helpful with the investigation so far but we hope there could be other people who could help us still.”

Anyone with information should email 101@sussex.pnn.police.uk quoting serial 807 of 13/08, call 101 or contact the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
