Do you recognise these youths?

Police would like to speak to them as they may have information about an attempt to break into a residential garage in Wilmington Road, Hastings, on Monday 5 August.

The owner of the garage reported to police that he saw four suspects walk up to the front of his garage and try the door handle several times at about 8.45am.

When officers arrived they had left and could not be found despite a search of the area.

Anyone who knows who the youths are or has any information about the incident should report online or ring 101 quoting 324 of 05/08.
