A man was arrested on the roof of a Tesco Express store after breaking in and stealing scratch cards.
Police were alerted after an intruder alarm was activated at the shop in Rectory Road, Worthing, around 2.09am on Monday 5 September.
Officers responded to the scene and could see a man inside the store tampering with the till area.
They contained the premises and called for additional resources, including the Dog Unit, before entering and climbing a ladder through an open loft hatch.
Once on the roof, they found the suspect and a Tesco bag full of scratch cards, which were recovered.
A 31-year-old man from Goring was arrested on suspicion of burglary and released on conditional bail until 17 October.
