A man who was wanted by police in Clacton for a decade has been charged with drugs and firearms offences.

Anthony Crux, 46, had been living in Spain but was arrested by police in Cambridgeshire with separate offences.

After Essex Police was informed about the arrest, he was charged with further offences including possession with intent to supply class A and B drugs, possession of class B drugs and possession of ammunition without a firearms license.

Detective Sergeant Jules Cole said: “Despite the passage of time this man was still wanted so we are pleased that Anthony Crux will now appear in court charged with serious offences involving drugs.”

He will appear at Peterborough Crown Court on Friday, August 23.
