A MAN stocked up for Christmas by stealing a gramophone and other valuable items from an antique shop.

The items were taken during two burglaries, both believed to be carried out by the same man, which took place at La Jolie Maison shop in Station Approach, Heathfield.

The first incident happened between 5pm on August 4 and 9am on August 5.

Then, the man is believed to have returned to the shop for a second incident which occurred between 12.40am and 12.55am on August 12.

A suspect was captured on camera on both occasions, and police are urging anyone who recognises him to call 101 or email 101@sussex.pnn.police.uk quoting serial 385 of 12/08.
