Harrogate police looking for wanted man

Police are appealing for the public’s help to locate a wanted Harrogate man.

Wayne Richard Porter, 28, is wanted for recall to prison after he breached his release conditions.

He was originally sentenced to two years in prison in February 2013, for possession of drugs with intent to supply. He was then released from prison one year later.

He is said to be white, 5ft 10in tall, with a medium build and dark brown hair. He is thought to be in the Harrogate area.

Members of the public can contact North Yorkshire Police by calling 101.

Wayne, if you see or hear this appeal, my advice is simple, hand yourself in. We have a good track record of returning wanted people to prison. By remaining at large you are only making the inevitable outcome worse for yourself. I am also asking members of the public who see Porter to contact the police straight away.”
