Do you recognise this man?
We are keen to speak with him in connection with two burglaries in Newport town centre on Tuesday, May 5.
The first burglary occurred at around 2am on 5 May at Market Bakery in Scarrots Lane.
Substantial damage was caused to the inside of the premises, an untidy search was carried out and a cash register was stolen.
At around 3.50am, The Retreat Café in Scarrots Lane was broken into and food was removed from inside.
We are appealing for witnesses who may have seen a man described as wearing jeans, dark trainers and a dark T-shirt, between 3.50am and 4.20am on 5 May in the vicinity of Scarrots Lane and South Street.
Although the image is not the clearest, we hope someone will recognise this man.
These incidents have had a significant impact on the businesses affected, and we would like to identify the person responsible as soon as possible.
Anyone with information is asked to contact police on 101, quoting 44200158083.
