Police launch operation to combat car contents thefts in Horsham

Police in Horsham have launched Operation Blackout as they tackle a spate of thefts from parked vehicles over recent weeks.

Incidents have been reported on several residential roads around the town, with thieves stealing whatever property comes to hand.

Sergeant Adam Ferries, of the Horsham neighbourhood policing team, said: "We have had some success with our investigations, but we would still ask motorists to reduce the risk of becoming victims by removing, or at least concealing, any valuables; ensuring doors and windows are secure, and parking in brightly-lit areas."

He added: "We're also encouraging anyone who sees or hears anything suspicious, or who is unfortunate enough to become a victim of theft themselves, to report it to police immediately using 999. Other information that may be of help can be sent online or by phoning 101."

A 50-year-old local man has been arrested on suspicion of vehicle interference in Rusper Road, Horsham, and reported for summons.

Two men charged in connection with Horsham murder

Two men have been charged with the murder of Anthony Williams on Tuesday, September 19 in Park Way, Horsham.


Nicholas Bridge, 18 from Loughborough Park, Brixton, London and Daniel Omofeghare, 20, of no fixed abode, have both been charged with murder. They will be appear at Brighton Magistrates Court on Saturday (September 23).

Two other men, both from Horsham, aged 50 and 36, have been arrested on Friday September 22 on suspicion of aiding, abetting or assisting the offence. They have both been released under investigation.
