BURGLARS broke into a flat in Old Town overnight and stole items from the owner who had been doing some work on the property.

He and his partner are furious and want our help.

Here is Sarah Bravo Stanf on Facebook this afternoon: “My partner bought a flat in Barcombe Close, Old Town of Eastbourne area and has been doing some work on it.

This morning when he went back to continue there had been a forced entry and all his tools were stolen.

His tools are needed for his work as he is a carpenter and we are extremely upset that someone has done something so cruel.

He had Dewalt cordless power tools, and a brand new numatic hoover in red. His friend had left his Makita tools and they even took new paint brushes and hand tools etc.

They completely wiped him out.

If anyone see’s anyone selling any tools or may have seen something between 5pm yesterday til 10am this morning in the Old Town area then please PM me. Any information will be gratefully received. This has also been reported to the police.”
