Thieves strip exhaust from vans

Thieves have been stripping entire exhaust systems from Mercedes vans in East Grinstead.

Sussex Police believe the offenders may have tracked down the vehicles and stolen the parts to order.

One theft took place at about 1.30am on Monday, August 5 in Halsford Green.

The other happened between 8pm on Sunday, August 4 and 6.45am on Monday, August 5 in Campbell Crescent.

Police would like to speak to anyone acting suspiciously in the area.

Graeme Prentice, of East Grinstead Neighbouring Policing Team, said: "Although the thieves could have escaped with the exhaust systems quite quickly, they may have made a substantial amount of noise removing them from the vans."
