A bag-snatcher on a bicycle pinched a bag of poo from an elderly dog-walker in Worthing.
The thief rode past the pensioner near the Post Office in High Street, Tarring, and grabbed a bag she had been using to clean up after her dog.
A spokeswoman for Sussex Police said: “A male on his pushbike came past her and snatched the bag, perhaps thinking that there was something of value inside.
“The lady was not harmed and clearly the thief stole nothing of value.”

The Happy Cloud installation filled the air outside the Tate Modern gallery with the faces, made from helium, soap and vegetable dye.
The artist, 28-year-old Stuart Semple, said he wanted to create something that would cheer people up.

“This was the most straightforward way I could think of to literally contribute something happy to the atmosphere.”
