Brighton News

Just had to share this headline from the Brighton Argus:

Two Men Held by Police After Prams Stolen

Two men from Surrey have been arrested on suspicion of theft after two prams worth more than £1,600 went missing from a shop.

A 26-year old man from Horley and a 23-year-old man from Morden were stopped in a car on the Surrey border after the theft from a shop in Lewes Road, Brighton, at around 1.15pm on Monday, August 31.

The suspects have been released on police bail until October 2 pending further inquiries.

PC Lisa Timerick, of Sussex Police, said: “We are in the early stages of the investigation and are still appealing for witnesses.

Anyone with information should call Sussex Police on 0845 60 70 999 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

Makes you wonder what features those prams (which I take it are what we Americans call strollers) had that made them worth £800 each. Perhaps gold plating?

It's hard to imagine a place where theft of prams makes the news!
