TWO men are being quizzed on suspicion of attempting to raid two jewellery shops.

A member of the public saw men hammering at the window of Gold Arts in East Street, Chichester, at about 2am yesterday and alerted police.

An alarm at nearby Ernest Jones went off a short while later.

PC Ali Hutchings said: ‘Police arrived within a minute of the report and an immediate search was launched.

‘A car was seen to make off down Marsh Lane towards the A259, which stopped at Drayton.

‘One man stayed in the car and was arrested and a second man was tracked through the field by a dog unit before being arrested in the grounds of White Whyke House.

A 31-year-old Havant man and a 25-year-old Chichester man were arrested on suspicion of burglary.

Last night they were still in custody.

Call Sussex Police on 101 quoting serial 59 of March 7 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555111.
