Wanted man fails to turn up for court in Colchester
3:00pm Thursday 13th September 2012 in News
ONE of Essex Police ’s most wanted men did not turn up for a court hearing.
Ben Barnham, 19, was due to appear at Colchester Magistrates’ Court to face charge of not attending probation appoi- ntments.
He is also wanted as part of Essex Police ’s burglary crackdown called Operation Nemesis.
They released his picture on Tuesday, as part of a rogues gallery of most wanted suspects. Probation officer Linda Double yesterday requested a warrant for his arrest, after revealing Barnham, formerly of Greenstead , Colchester, had skipped four out of seven appointments.
A letter had been sent telling him of the court date, but the probation service was also not sure of his address.
Barnham is wanted on suspicion of breaching a non-molestation order on August 14 this year.
Anyone with information on his whereabouts can call police on 101, e-mail opnemesis @essex.pnn.police.uk or call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
