FOUR men were seen breaking into cars parked in Bognor Regis.
The group, who were spotted on December 30, in Annandale Avenue, fled in the direction of Longford Road when they realised they had been seen.
No detailed description of the men was given as it was to dark for the witness to see them closely.
The group were using mobile phones to see what they were doing.
Anyone who was in the area at the time and saw the group or saw them running away should contact Sussex Police on 101 quoting serial number 0061 of December 30.
You can also contact the independent charity Crimestoppers anomalously on 0800 55 111.

The crime took place between 6pm that night and 7.15am the following morning. Two drills and a black and Yellow Stanley tool box were stolen.
Anyone with details should call 101.
