Police have released images and details of a vehicle they are looking to trace as part of an ongoing burglary investigation in Copthorne during which £2,000 of building materials were taken.
Officers received a report that two men had been disturbed after breaking in by the owner of a property in Shipley Bridge Lane at around 6am on Friday May 6. They then drove off in a white, flatbed Inveco van. The van had a registration of GN07KNJ and a sign on the rear either spelt ‘PHILAMAR’ or ‘PHILMAR’ and below that ‘PLANT AND MACHINERY’.
Checks on the vehicle currently show no registered owner.
One of the suspects is white, slim with facial hair. He was wearing a green hoody, a dark baseball cap, jogging bottoms, black socks and white trainers with blue detailing.
The other suspect is white, of large build and clean shaven. He was wearing a blue hoody, black jogging bottoms and white trainers.
Anyone with any information which can help the investigation is urged to report online.
