Police are trying to trace a burglar from Brighton who is wanted for recall to prison.

Simon Bercowitz, 67, of Marine Parade, Brighton, was jailed for five and a half years in June 2012 for a series of antiques burglaries in Hampshire.

He was released from prison on licence on Monday (20 October).

But Bercowitz has now been recalled to prison to continue serving his sentence because he has breached the terms of his release by not attending an appointment with the probation service.

He has family and friends in Worthing and Bognor but has committed offences in Hampshire, Devon and Cornwall.

Detective Constable Neill Pye said: “There is nothing to suggest that Bercowitz is committing further offences but we need to find and arrest him so that he can be returned to custody.

“If you see him, if you know him or if you know where he could be, please contact us.”

Anyone with information is asked to phone Sussex Police on 101, email 101@sussex.pnn.police.uk or call the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
