Police are searching for a man who failed to appear at court.

Ryan Higson is wanted for failing to appear in court on September 30 after he was charged with theft from a shop in Southgate, Crawley, and for breaching a court order for community service.

Police said the 27-year-old was also sought in connection with a series of 11 shoplifting offences in the Crawley area over the past two months.

A police spokesman said Higson was 6ft tall, of slim build, with light brown hair and had been living at addresses in the Bewbush area.

He is still believed to be in Crawley or north Sussex.

Anyone who sees him or knows where he may be is asked to contact Sussex Police via 101@sussex.pnn.police.uk or call 101, quoting serial 1426 of 15/09.

You can also call the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
