A chip shop owner from Brighton who trapped a burglar in his store by closing the shutters has released CCTV of the incident.
The owner of the Preston Fish Bar on Beaconsfield Road - Ramez Khalil, who lives nearby - heard the window of the front door being smashed.
From his home, he was able to close the electric shutters, trapping the unsuspecting burglar inside until police arrived.
Mr Khalil has been burgled three times in over a year already. He said he installed the security system to help tackle the criminals. The system is linked to his phone which could be monitored at all times.
The police arrived, armed with guns and tasers.
Francesco Di Biase, who's 43, pleaded guilty to burglary and was given a 12 month Community Order.
