Police search York for fugitives
POLICE searching for a pair of missing fugitives have taken to the streets of York to try to find them.
Wesley Glover, whose last known address is Reid Park, Haxby, was released from a 14 month prison sentence for an offence of wounding, but is wanted for breaching the terms of his release licence.
Officers visited numerous addresses in and around Acomb today asking local residents for information about Glover’s movements in recent weeks.
Inspector Rob Thorpe, of York police, said: “Wesley Glover is not doing himself any favours at all by continuing to evade the police and the longer this goes on the worse the consequences will be when we do catch up with him.
“We will keep knocking on doors until we find him and if you know where Glover is and you don’t want a visit from the police I suggest you hand him in as soon as possible. If you are helping Glover to evade the police you are committing an offence yourself and when we arrest him you will be arrested as well.”
Glover, 21, is described as white, around 5ft 10in tall, with a medium build, brown hair and blue eyes, and police said his poor behaviour since his release means he must return to custody.
Police were also making inquiries as to the whereabouts of Simon Debnam, 29, who is wanted for failing to attend court on charges of conspiracy to supply Class B drugs.
Officers believe that Debnam, described as white, around 6ft 4in tall, with brown hair, is still in the York area, and are appealing to the public to report any sightings of him.
Detective Inspector Dave Kirby, of York police, said: “Simon Debnam is well aware that we will be looking for him having failed to attend court as required earlier this month.
“He is shying away from facing up to the offence he has been charged with and he needs to realise that running away is not going to help his cause.”
The public are being urged to get in touch with the police if they see anyone matching the description of either man in the York area, and could be eligible to a cash reward of up to £1,000 if their information leads to Glover being arrested and charged.
Anyone who has information relating to the whereabouts of either man should contact police on 101, or Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555111.
