POLICE are trying to identify this man in connection to a number of high value car thefts.

A number of Range Rovers and Land Rovers have been reported stolen through keyless thefts from across West Sussex.

The incidents took place predominantly in Arun and Worthing, over the last 18 months.

During the investigation three men have been arrested and released under investigation, pending further enquiries.

The man in the picture can be seen to be wearing glasses and appears to have a moustache.

Keyless theft has been growing across the country, with thieves able to use equipment that can boost the signal from a key fob to trick the car into thinking it’s next to the car, which unlocks it.

People can avoid this by keeping their keys at the back of the house, far from their parked vehicle, or buying a Faraday cage to store the key, which blocks the signal when not in use.

Anyone who recognises the man pictured is asked to report it online or call 101, quoting Operation Value.

You can also contact the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 or report it online.
