Police have released this CCTV image of a man they want to speak to in connection with a supermarket bomb hoax.
Police said the suspicious package caused a "significant amount of disruption" when it was reported on December 10 last year.
A phone call was made to Morrisons supermarket in Sutton Road, Maidstone, at around midday - reporting a device had been left inside the store.
The supermarket was evacuated and a suspicious package was destroyed in a controlled explosion. The store was shut for the rest of the day.
Police have now released this image, and are hoping the man will come forward and shed more light on the incident.
Det Insp Lee Whitehead, from the Kent and Essex Serious Crime Directorate, said: “This hoax caused a significant amount of disruption at the store during a very busy time of the year.
"It also caused unnecessary concern for both shoppers and employees at the store and required a substantial amount of police resources.
"We have made one arrest in connection with the investigation, but we are now appealing for this man, or anyone who recognises him, to contact us so we can further our investigation.”
Anyone with any information is asked to contact the Kent and Essex Serious Crime Directorate on 01622 654863.
