Three people have been arrested after a car was stolen from Forest Row on Tuesday 15 September.
A house was broken into around 1.40am and car keys were taken moments before the car was stolen.
The stolen car was involved in a collision in Kent on Thursday 17 September after failing to stop for police.
A 16 year old boy and 20 year old man both from Edenbridge, along with a 19 year old man from Queenborough were arrested at the scene.
Inspector Jon Gross said, “We have developed close working relationships with colleagues in other forces to tackle cross-border criminality, and the benefit of that is shown here where officers in Kent have been able to identify and stop a car stolen in Sussex.”
