Kids stealing vapes from Goring store in broad daylight

A GANG of kids was caught on camera looting a vape store before running away.

The incident happened on July 7th in Londis at Goring Road, Goring.

The group of four kids entered the store just after 7pm before grabbing several vapes from a shelf and running away.

It comes as we revealed last week how juvenile delinquency in the Worthing area has gotten so bad that police have made a ‘wanted’ poster of 30 notorious boys and girls for train staff to watch out for.

Sussex Police are aware of the children in the video and the investigation is “ongoing”.

The shopkeeper, who wished to remain anonymous, said: “That day they came into my shop and then went to two or three others. They stole wine, alcohol and broke the bottles. They have done many things to businesses in the area.

“In this area, we have been in this business for a number of months. All good folks, the locals here are asking about the state of affairs. People are watching videos of the incidents online.”

CCTV stills show a man in a yellow top trying to stop one of the children from leaving with the stolen vapes.

An employee in a pink top also confronted the youths before they managed to escape.

The shop owner has now put the vapes behind a case to prevent people from stealing them.

For the last week we have reported on how crime such as shoplifting, mugging and arson has ravaged the town of Worthing.

Concerns have been raised that shoplifting will go unpunished in the area.

Arrests have been made for more serious crimes, such as allegedly attacking shop staff or setting fire to a platform cafe at Worthing station.

Investigations into most of these incidents are ongoing.

Some crimes have been brought to justice, including when a 14-year-old boy attacked a shop worker at Budgens in Boxgrove, Goring, in March.

The boy has been given a juvenile rehabilitation order, which includes wearing a tag and supervision and a £22 fine for his parents/guardians.

A 13-year-old boy was stabbed to death in the city center on March 13.

Two boys have pleaded not guilty and will appear in court on November 4th. Another boy was due to be sentenced on August 12 but Sussex Police still had no recorded outcome of that hearing.

Another man who lives in the area said: “The impact on the community has been appalling. I speak for the people I spoke to after incidents. It could be my mum, your mum, someone’s grandma.

“Staff have come to terms with the behavior, some people have quit their jobs.

“There is nothing more fundamental than the right of every human being to earn a living. Most people would agree that if you’re not in the army, you’d make that living in a safe environment.”

A Sussex Police spokesman said: “The investigation into this matter is ongoing.

“Witnesses or anyone with information are asked to report this online to Sussex Police quoting serial number 1227 dated 07/07.” Kids stealing vapes from Goring store in broad daylight
