Cordon set up around Crawley Police station after suspect package found



If you passed by Crawley Police Station earlier this morning you would have noticed that the entrance had been taped up.

A cordon was setup as a precaution to protect the public with an officer standing guard outside.

Several members of the public called in concerned about the cordon.

The precaution was taken after police discovered an unattended bag outside the police station in Northgate Avenue, Crawley.

Thankfully the bag was found to only contain personal items.

As a result the police confirmed there were no suspicious circumstances and the cordon was lifted around 9:45am.


Pound Hill, Crawley man charged with murder of Ifield woman

The Crown Prosecution Service has authorised a charge of murder against a man arrested in connection with the death of a woman in Crawley.



Emergency services were called to a fire at a flat in Warren Drive about 5.38pm on Wednesday 11 July, 2018.

They carried out CPR on a 53-year-old woman but despite their best efforts, she was sadly pronounced dead at the scene.

She has been identified as Marie Denise Toulsee of Tussock Close, Crawley. The victim’s family have been updated and are being supported by specialist officers.

Two local men who were also inside the property when police arrived, were arrested on suspicion of murder and released under investigation pending further enquiries.

Following new evidence, Louis Navarre, 56, a cleaner, of Blackwater Lane, Crawley, was re-arrested on suspicion of murder on Thursday 7 November and has since been charged with this offence.

He appeared before Staines Magistrates’ Court on Friday 8 November and has since been remanded in custody to appear for a preliminary hearing at Lewes Crown Court on Monday 11 November.

The second suspect – a 38-year-old man – voluntarily attended police custody and was released without charge. He will face no further action.
