Name sought for Uckfield rugby club burglar

Police at Uckfield are seeking a night-time burglar who took a till drawer from the local rugby club bar, only to find it was empty.

At about 5am on Thursday 28 May, this man entered the grounds of Uckfield RFC at Nevill Road, Uckfield, by climbing the main gate, used a brick to smash the glass on the pitch exit door, then went straight upstairs to the till behind the bar, smashed the till screen with the same brick and then left with the till drawer.

He left by running across the rugby pitch towards Mitchelham Road and the woods nearby.

But the till drawer was empty as the club has been closed since March because of coronavirus!

PC Rebecca Walter said; “If you think you know who this man is, please let us know. You can contact usĀ onlineĀ or by calling 101, quoting serial 254 of 28/05.”
