Lewes Depot Burglary – re-appeal for information

Police are re-appealing for information following the burglary and removal of a safe from The Depot cinema in Lewes.

The building was broken into at some time between 12 midnight and 3.30am on Good Friday, April 19.

Whoever was responsible appears to have spent a significant amount of time inside before leaving the scene with a safe that was later found discarded in Cow Lane, Laughton.

Enquiries are still ongoing, however Police are keen to speak to anyone with information and in particular people who are known to have walked along Pinwell Road, between the cinema and the railway station, while the burglary was in progress and someone who used waste bins in the area at the time.
Please report online or call 101 quoting serial 192 of 19/04.
