Sussex police officers have recovered possessions they believe to have been stolen.

The items are thought to have been taken during a number of burglaries across Sussex.

The haul includes various items of jewellery and antiques.

It was discovered by police when they stopped three men, back in March.

Investigating Officer Ellie Mannan said:

“As well as personal items, a number of victims also reported that money was taken during the break-ins and has left them feeling unsettled.”

Home that have been broken into extend from Lancing, through to Rottingdean, to Crowborough in East Sussex.

There were also break ins at properties in Steyning, Shoreham and Hove.

Police say are also looking into a number of burglaries in Surrey to see if they are also linked.

The thefts all took place between the beginning of January and middle of March.

A 35-year-old man from Brighton, a 31-year-old man from Southwick and a 31-year-old man from Shoreham have all been arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to commit burglary and have been released under investigation.

It is also possible to report information to police by calling 101 quoting serial 1141 of 16/02.

Officers say they particularly want to hear from anyone who recognises the past time jewellery boxes.

Similarly police are especially hoping to find the owner of the money bag with Australian coins in.
