Parcel thefts from Brighton doorsteps
9:45am Friday 12th October 2012 in News
Thieves are stealing parcels left outside homes, say police.
Sussex Police have received reports of parcels going missing in the Springfield Road and Ditchling Road areas of Brighton.
It is believed opportunist thieves are looking out for delivery workers and watching to see if they leave parcels outside.
Officers are carrying out high-visibility patrols in the area.
Inspector Bill Whitehead said: “As we moved towards Christmas we are likely to have more parcels being delivered.
“If you are expecting a parcel and you are going to be out, give instructions for it to be left with a trustworthy neighbour.”
Anyone with information is asked to call Sussex Police on 101.
