Wanted man arrested after his mum rang police

A HUDDERSFIELD man wanted by the police was arrested after his mum talked the man into giving himself up.

Investigations by Huddersfield police officers to find the man, who had breached his bail conditions on January 26, had fed back to the 23-year-old’s mum, who called the police on Tuesday after convincing him to give himself up.

The man was arrested and remanded in custody and will be appearing at Huddersfield Magistrates on March 19.

On January 22, the 23-year old had been arrested on suspicion of dangerous driving, driving whilst disqualified and driving without insurance, after being stopped in the Lindley Moor area of Huddersfield.

After being charged, he had been bailed by the courts to stay at a an address in the Berry Brow area. When security officers visited the address and found that the man wasn’t there, the police was informed and he was circulated as wanted.

Inspector Jon Dunkerley, whose officers had been making inquiries to find the man, said: “Response officers are aware of local policing issues and the communities of Kirklees they police. Suspects on occasion avoid arrest and in between responding to calls for service, my units will actively seek out such wanted persons.

“This arrest is an example of this type of hard work filtering into the community and making people give themselves up to the police. I am pleased that officers on my team have worked tirelessly and with understanding of the local community to arrest this man and put him back before the courts.”
