Main article content
Police investigating burglaries in the Chelwood Gate area of East Sussex, south of Forest Row, are keen to speak to the man shown here, as yet unidentified.
Detective Constable Andy Mountford-Laker said: "We'd like to talk to him in connection with the investigation, and also to hear from anyone who may be able to tell us who he is and where he comes from.
"It may be that he lives further afield, so that someone living in Kent or Surrey may recognise him."
The man himself, or anybody able to provide information about him, is asked to contact Sussex Police online or by phoning 101, quoting serial 545 of 21/11/2019, or call the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
The burglaries being investigated occurred on 21 November last year and involved thefts from outbuildings, both in Beaconsfield Road, Chelwood Gate.
In one incident, a white Peugeot van was seen parked in suspicious circumstances across the driveway of a property. A pick axe was stolen and was believed to have been used in a second incident nearby.
Here a side gate was broken, a shed door was prised open and an unsuccessful attempt was made to force a garage door, causing criminal damage. Two mountain bikes and a petrol leaf-blower were stolen.
