From the Kent and Sussex Courier, 22 December, 1950.

Thieves’ 200 raid on hotel. Decamped with spirits and cigarettes.

SPIRITS and cigarettes valued at about 200 were stolen early on Monday from the "High Rocks Hotel," between Groombridge and Tunbridge Wells.

Major F. Collar, senior partner in the business, was disturbed by a noise outside his room. Jumping out of bed he opened the door and almost succeeded in grabbing a man who escaped after a chase down stairs.

Then Major Collar found that the telephone wires had been cut but his son and daughter held the broken wires together while he called the police.

The hotel cellar was almost cleared and bottles and cigarettes were taken from the shelves of the bar. Also stolen was a 10s. note—proceeds of a darts competition in aid of St. Dunstan's.

No sign of a forced entry could be found.
