Two men have been arrested after burglars stole a sports car from outside a house in Brighton this morning (Friday 17 January).
The thieves broke into the house in Roedean Crescent, Brighton, at about 12.50am and stole valuable antiques, fine wines, champagne and cigars.
They left in the Maserati Granturismo sports car which was parked on the drive.
About 10 minutes later the Maserati crashed into two parked cars in Lewes Road, Newhaven, where it was abandoned.
Officers from Sussex Police searched the area, went to an address in nearby Piddinghoe shortly afterwards and arrested two men. Some items from the burglary were found there.
Two men, a 23-year old from Putney, in London, and a 29-year old with no fixed address, were arrested on suspicion of burglary.
They are currently in custody awaiting interview.
