Police appeal after theft Credit: Sussex Police

She was captured on CCTV at Little Miss Piggies Café in St James' Street.

The jar in the shape of a pig contained £45 in tips for staff.

We are appealing to anyone who recognises the suspect to let us know who it is. You have to watch the CCTV footage carefully as she takes the tip jar quickly from the counter before leaving the café.
