Fireworks, worth thousands of pounds, have been stolen from a storage facility in Eastbourne.
Police believe the raid on ESK in Courtlands Road on between 9pm-midnight on Tuesday (24 January), may have been a carefully planned burglary.
It is believed two intruders were responsible, targeting Spook-branded fireworks after breaking into the unit.
PC James Gardner, of the Eastbourne neighbourhood response team, said, "This was almost certainly a carefully planned and targeted theft.
"The quantity of fireworks stored at ESK would suggest that a reasonably large vehicle was used to transport them, and it would have taken several hours to move the fireworks from the premises."
Anyone who was in Courtlands Road at the time of the break-in and who recalls seeing any suspicious people, vehicles or activity; anyone who knows where the fireworks may have been offered for sale or indeed anyone with any information is asked to contact police here, quoting serial 255 of 25/01.
