Wanted: Joseph Almond, in connection with
several offences, including assault and
a burglary.
Lancashire Police are appealing for information that will help them track down Joseph Almond - a man who is wanted in connection with an assault and a burglary in Morecambe back in June, as well as in connection with a burglary in Folkestone, Kent.

The 34-year-old failed to appear at Preston Crown court in July 2010 to face an allegation of burglary, and in December 2009 he was wanted in connection with mobile phones being smuggled into Lancaster Castle Prison.

He is also wanted on prison recall from 25th June 2010. Almond was jailed for 12 months in August 2009 for throwing a mobile phone into Preston prison. He was released in February 2010, but was then recalled in June and has yet to make contact with the authorities.

Almond is around 5ft 6 inches tall, of stocky build, with blue eyes and has various tattoos on both arms and his neck

He has previously lived in Bold Street, Heysham, but he has associates in Morecambe and Lancaster on the Ryelands Estate. However, police think he could have left the area and may now be in Preston.

Almond’s photograph, and details of other people who are currently wanted by police, can be found at www.lancashire.police.uk/wanted.

“I would ask the public to report any sightings to the police," says Inspector John Clucas of Lancashire Police. "I would also appeal directly Joseph Almond to come forward and contact us.”
