A 14-year old boy from Crowborough has been arrested on suspicion of two counts of burglary at The Original Factory Shop in the Fernbank Centre.
Sussex Police received reports of two separate burglaries in the early hours of 16th and 18th March.
In a Facebook post the store explained that a large quantity of vapes were stolen:
The 14-year-old boy has been released on conditional bail until 18th June, pending further enquiries.
Sorry for the damage to shop and accounts. Glad they’re no longer selling vapes. Wish they hadn’t in the first place, horrible things, that do much harm to young people, who think it’s cool to smoke these and don’t realise the harm they do. Hope the boy gets an appropriate sanction.
