A MAN who is wanted by police for four theft offences has been spotted in Worcester.

West Mercia Police has further appealed for the whereabouts of Jacob Telford, after he fled from court on his cigarette break on July 5.

An appeal from South Worcestershire Proactive CID's Facebook page today, said Telford has been seen in recent days riding a push bike around Worcester.


The Worcester News previously reported Telford's disappearance when the 21-year-old faced four theft charges - shoplifting of meat worth £234 from Co-op in Worcester on July 30 last year; stealing £50 of meat from Co-op on September 14 last year; theft of £83.50 in packets of steak from Lower Wick Filling Station on October 10 last year and stealing £71 of meat products from Lower Wick Filling Station on January 16 this year.

A warrant for his arrest was later issued by magistrates and West Mercia Police have put out an appeal to anyone who may have information about his whereabouts to get in touch.

Telford is described as a white male of small build, around 5ft 2ins tall.

Anyone with information as to his current whereabouts has been asked to call 101.

Alternatively, information can be given to the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111 or via the website.
