Police believe the man caught the train from Epsom to Streatham

CCTV has been released of a man police want to speak to in connection with three burglaries in Surrey.

Police released the image after credit cards, stolen from three homes in Epsom, were used in a shopping spree costing thousands of pounds.

The burglaries happened on 1 June and the cards were used within three hours at stores in Streatham, south London.

Someone also attempted to use the cards the following day at Thornton Heath station and Argos in Wandsworth.

The items bought include a £1,200 17-inch Apple Mac laptop, a £470 HD camcorder, a Nokia N92 mobile phone and head-set worth £510, a steering wheel for a X-box 360, a Nintendo Wii remote and computer games.

PC David Every said: "By trawling backwards from CCTV obtained where the stolen cards were used in Streatham I have been able to trace a suspect getting off and back on the train again at Epsom railway station.

"This has been a complex investigation as it is a painstaking process down-loading CCTV images but the images we have of this suspect are very clear."
