Two stolen shotguns have been found stashed outside flats in a Hangleton cul de sac.
According to police, they were stolen in a burglary in Dorset two years ago.
Sussex Police said: “Police are appealing for information after two stolen shotguns were found in Hove.
“The guns, which were in a black carry case, were discovered in an outside area undergoing renovation works in Storrington Close on (Wednesday) 8 August.
