“Bowles, who completed a four-year sentence for burglary on (Thursday) 23 April, is described as white, 5ft 3in, of slim build, with short brown hair and blue eyes.

“He is believed to have links to Lewes and Brighton.”

Bowles, formerly of Preston Road, Brighton, was described as a “creeper” – breaking into people’s homes as they slept – when he appeared at Lewes Crown Court two years ago.

He pleaded guilty to five burglaries – all in Brighton – and was sentenced to four years in prison.

Anyone who sees him is asked to phone Sussex Police on 101 or call the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
