Police Seek Driver To Give Her Flowers!

Police are trying to locate a woman involved in an arrest in Brighton - to send her a big bunch of flowers!

A plain clothes officer pursuing a man wanted for questioning in connection with a burglary in Crawley on Thursday morning (June 9) flagged down a woman and asked for help in catching up with the man. He had run off after his car was spotted in Robin Dene.

The officer, who has not been identified, said: "Thankfully, the lady, who had dark hair and was driving a white convertible, was very public-spirited and in no time at all we had caught up with the suspect and I managed to arrest him. The lift meant that I had fresh legs and he didn't! 

"Unfortunately, while I was busy with him, the lady drove off and I didn't get the chance to thank her. If she gets in touch, I'm going to make sure she gets a big bunch of flowers with my thanks."

If you are that driver who helped out, please email 101@sussex.pnn.police.uk or call 101 quoting serial 444 of 09/06.

A 20-year-old man from Brighton was arrested in East Brighton Park at 12.25pm on suspicion of receiving stolen goods, going equipped for theft and burglary, the latter in connection with the burglary of a house in Teesdale, Crawley, between 9.30pm on Wednesday and 6.30am on Thursday.

He remained in custody at 4pm on Thursday.
