Goodwood House raid linked to series of robberies in south of England
A frightening raid on Goodwood House has been linked with a series of seven other robberies in the south of England, which could be the work of a 'highly professional soldier'.
The Earl and Countess of March lost more than £700,000 of family heirlooms after being attacked and tied up by a burglar at their Goodwood estate in 2016.
Police now believe the armed raid was the work of a 'well-spoken, intelligent thief' with a military background, because of the meticulous way he has carried out raids in Sussex, Surrey and Berkshire over a three-year period.
Inspector Dee Fielding from Surrey Police told The Argus: "He appears to have knowledge of who is home at the time of each attack, the location of safes and the layout of the home.
"This leads us to believe he has planned the attacks in advance with a great level of detail and prior knowledge."
Anyone with any information on the suspect should call 101 and ask for Surrey Police regarding Operation Prometheus or email OpPrometheus@surrey.pnn.police.uk
