The house had been broken into around 1.40am that morning and a car key was taken from inside. Moments later, the car was then also stolen.
A 20-year-old man from Edenbridge, Kent, was arrested on suspicion of burglary dwelling and theft, aiding / abetting dangerous driving, and aggravated vehicle taking (being carried on) and dangerous driving.
All three have been released on bail with conditions including not to enter Sussex, and not to associate with each other.
