Burglar was "looking for small items" to sell on

Police investigating the theft of more than £10,000 worth of gold jewellery in Sussex are asking anyone offered the chance to buy gold jewellery at low prices to contact them.

A burglar stole items including rings and bracelets from a house in Rushlake Road in Brighton.

Whoever broke in searched the house thoroughly before leaving with the large quantity of gold jewellery. High value electrical items such as laptops and TVs were left behind which would suggest the thief was only looking for small items that could be easily carried away and sold on.

If you are offered the chance to buy gold jewellery at low prices please contact us. I would also urge residents to be watchful for people acting suspiciously in their community. If you see someone behaving oddly near your home or one of your neighbours' homes please call 999 immediately."

– Detective Constable Scott Moore, Sussex Police
