Police have issued a witness appeal after around £3,600 worth of cigarettes was stolen from the back of a lorry.
Sussex Police said the theft took place during a delivery at the Co-Op store in Ifield Parade at around 6pm on Tuesday last week (May 13).
A man was seen fleeing with a large bag after opening the rear of the lorry as it was reversing. He was wearing a red vest and black hat.
He was described as white, approximately 25-years-old, 6ft tall and of average build.

“They should contact police on 101, email@example.com or the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 quoting serial 1220 13/5.”
