Brighton burglary suspects caught ordering post-raid takeaway
12:01pm Thursday 18th October 2012 in News
Three suspects were arrested waiting for a takeaway at a drive-thru moments after a businessman was thrown from a van after confronting burglars.
The man was thrown from a van after hanging on to the bonnet along Lewes Road at 8pm last night.
He was responding to reports that a burglary was taken place at storage units he owned in Barcombe Road.
Police officers then pursued a van into Newhaven where three men were arrested while they waited at the McDonalds drive-thru in The Drove.
A large amount of commercial gym equipment thought to be worth thousands of pounds was recovered from the back of the van.
Two Brighton men aged 31 and 20 and a 34-year-old man from Seaford remain in custody for questioning.
Detective Sergeant Helen Paine from Brighton and Hove CID said: "If you have any information then please call 101 quoting serial 1653 of 17/10 or you can leave a message anonymously with the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111."
