Police want to hear from anyone who saw a ram raid at Sainsbury’s Local store in Portland Road, Hove, on Monday (July 17).

At 11.45pm a white Vauxhall Nova car, which had been stolen minutes earlier from nearby Wordsworth Street, was deliberately crashed into the front of the store – say Sussex Police.

Offices say two suspects went into the shop and stole a box of CDs and games. The stolen Vauxhall was found abandoned around the corner in Shelley Road and the burglars left in a black car parked nearby.

Detective Constable Ed Downes said: “We are appealing for anyone who saw the people involved in this incident to get in touch with is. We also want information on the black car, which appears to have been used as a getaway vehicle.”

Any witness or anyone with information is asked to contact police online or ring 101 quoting serial 1857 of 17/07.
