A MAN wanted in connection with nine burglaries has been arrested by police.

Robert Cox was arrested in Littlehampton today after police launched an appeal to find him.

The 33-year-old was wanted in relation to the string of burglaries which all happened within a small area around Hangleton Library in West Way, Hove. The incidents started on January 2.

He was also being sought on recall to prison after breaching his early release requirements.

Sussex Police launched a series of appeals to find him this week and the force’s Tactical Enforcement Unit worked with detectives from Brighton and Hove to find him.
