Eddie Maher to face Securicor theft charges

An Essex man who spent almost 20 years in the US is due in court charged with the theft of a security van in Suffolk containing £1.2 million.

Eddie Maher, 57, originally from South Woodham Ferrers, had been wanted by Suffolk Police since the Securicor van he was driving disappeared from outside Lloyds Bank, in Felixstowe, on January 22 1993.

He was arrested by US authorities in February last year and had been held in custody since being deported in May.

He is expected to appear at Southwark Crown Court after pleading not guilty to theft.
