Wanted Man Arrested After Mum Calls Police
Wednesday 1 February, 2012.
A Huddersfield man wanted by the police was arrested yesterday 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 the 26 January, had fed back to the 23-year old's mum, who called the police after convincing the man to give himself up.
The man was arrested and remanded in custody and will be appearing at Huddersfield Magistrates on the 19 March.
On the 22 January, 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 enquiries 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."
