Officers would like to speak to him in connection with the theft of two sculptures from a city centre art gallery.

One sculpture - of a little girl in a ponytail holding a fishing net, and worth between £695-£895 - is believed to have been taken from the White Horse Art Gallery, Flying Horse Walk, at around 12.55pm on 17 May. 

The second (pictured), a limited edition worth £695 called Space Cadets by Doug Hyde, was taken at around 2.30pm the following day.

Officers believe the man pictured in CCTV may have information that could help the enquiry and are appealing for him, or anyone who recognises him, or anyone who has been offered the sculptures for sale, to call 101, quoting incident number 300 of 19 May 2019. Alternatively, call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
