Issued by North Yorkshire Police

Police searching for wanted York man Wesley Glover have been knocking on doors in the Acomb area of the city as they continue their efforts to find him.

Glover, aged 21, whose last known address is Reid Park in Haxby is wanted for breaching the terms of his prison release licence.

He was sentenced to 14 months in prison following an offence of wounding in April 2012 and his poor behaviour since his release means he must return to custody.

Officers visited numerous addresses in and around Acomb on Friday 8 March 2013 asking local residents for information about Glover’s movements in recent weeks.

The public are being urged to get in touch with the police if they see anyone matching Glover’s description in the York area.

Alternatively, people can contact Crimestoppers anonymously and could be eligible to a cash reward of up to £1,000 if their information leads to Glover being arrested and charged.

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.”

Anyone who can help officers to find Wesley Glover is urged to contact North Yorkshire Police on 101 – select option 1 – and pass information to the Force Control Room.

If you wish to remain anonymous, Crimestoppers can be contacted on 0800 555 111.
