A thief who was jailed for 10 months in May last year and released on licence in January this year is wanted for recall to prison after breaching the terms of that licence.
Charles Donald Pleasance, 30, of no fixed address but originally from the Lewes area, was sent to HMP Rochester in Kent after being convicted of nine shoplifting offences.
It is thought he may have connections in Brighton and Hove.
A warrant has been issued for his arrest and police want to hear from anyone who sees Pleasance or who may know of his present whereabouts.
They are asked to report details online or call 101, quoting serial 1168 of 22/03.
