This is the face of the man police want to speak to after a Rolex watch was stolen from a jewellers.

The watch was stolen from the shop in Surrey Street, Croydon, by two men who went in and asked to look at the timepiece.

They returned to the store a while later and asked to look at the watch again.

It is believed that they then swapped the watch with a replica before leaving the shop with the original.

Staff realised a short time later and then called the police to report the theft.

The crime happened on January 28 but police have only just issued this image of 23-year-old Frederick Webb.

Mr Webb is also wanted for failing to appear at Guildford Crown Court on May 23, for an unrelated offence.

Anyone with any information about the whereabouts of the 23-year-old should call the police on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555111.
