Property was recovered

A CAR thief was chased down by its owner in Bognor Regis.

About 6.30pm on October 9, a thief attempted to break into an unlocked car parked in Oxford Street.

The male got into the car and searched for valuables – he then attempted to make his escape after he was spotted by the owner.

The owner chased the thief and recovered his property.

Three days later about 9am a cast iron shoe cleaner was stolen. It was taken from the doorstep of a home in Walton Avenue. The male thief was in an open-backed lorry.
