A man wanted by detectives investigating a burglary in Poulton is still on the run almost six months after police first put out an appeal to help catch him.

Joseph Gregory, 23, formerly of Argyle Road in Poulton, is wanted following a burglary in the town last year.

Despite twice appealing for information about his whereabouts, police have yet to find him.

He is wanted in connection with an offence on Brompton Road on August 11, 2014.

Det Sgt Abigail Finch, of Blackpool Police, said: “We believe that Joseph Gregory has links to the Poulton area and I would appeal to anybody with any information about his current whereabouts to contact police on 101.”

Gregory is described as white, approximately 5ft 7ins tall, with a stocky build and has short or shaven dark hair.

Lee Carroll, 30, of Gamble Road, Thornton, was charged with aggravated burglary in relation to the offence and found guilty at Preston Crown Court on Monday. He is due to be sentenced on March 26.
