Two teenagers among those arrested as police seek owners of stolen items from garages in Crawley?



Police are trying to trace the owners of items thought to be stolen from garages in Crawley.

Officers were called at 1.24am on April 23 to reports of garages being broken into in Hillmead.

An angle grinder and a lawnmower were recovered nearby, but nobody has yet come forward to report them as stolen.

Anyone who recognises them, or who has any other information about the burglaries, is asked to contact police online or call 101 quoting serial 0089 of 23/04.

Three people – a 16-year-old boy, a 17-year-old boy and a 20-year-old man – were arrested on suspicion of burglary other than dwelling with intent to steal and attempted theft from a motor vehicle.

The 17-year-old boy was also arrested on suspicion of criminal damage. The 16-year-old boy and 20-year-old man were also arrested on suspicion of possession of a Class B drug (cannabis).

All three have been released under investigation while enquiries continue.


Police drop investigation in alleged bullying of Oriel High School boy



Sussex Police have confirmed they have made the decision to drop an investigation into an incident of alleged bullying.

The investigation was launched following an outcry from concerned residents when a video emerged on social media.

The video has since been taken down from most social media accounts.

Earlier Susses Police had confirmed they had launched an investigation into the incident and were liaising with Oriel High School.

Now it appears their investigation has turned up new information which has led to their decision to drop the police’s involvement and hand it over to the school.

A statement from Sussex Police said:

“Police have investigated the circumstances surrounding a video on social media showing the alleged bullying of a boy by fellow students from Oriel High School in Maidenbower, Crawley.

As a result, the matter has been passed to the school for any action they feel is appropriate.”
