Sussex police has released a CCTV image as it appeals for help to identify this man (pictured).
In a statement it said: “He was spotted on CCTV in Felpham recently, in an area where there has been a spate of overnight thefts from cars and vans. 16 offences were reported in the last two weeks of August and Satnavs, mobile phones, wallets and purses have been reported stolen.
