“Dangerous” criminal goes on the run
SUFFOLK Police have joined a nationwide hunt for a man considered a threat to the public who went missing from a treatment centre.
People have been warned not to approach James Robertson Rennie, who is described as dangerous and has a history of burglary and robbery.
The 31-year-old, who was reported missing at 12.24pm yesterday, from a treatment centre in Weymouth, Dorset, is white, 5ft 9in, of medium build and with reddish hair.
Rennie was released from prison on licence after being given a nine year prison sentence for burglary, attempted burglary and robbery against elderly people.
Detective Inspector Guy Shimmons of Dorset Police said: “Rennie is a dangerous man and because he poses a threat to the public due to the crimes he has committed, he must be caught as a matter of urgency.

“While Rennie may still be in Dorset, he has links to the Brighton area of Sussex as well as the London area and is believed to have family in Scotland.

“We have been making extensive enquiries and Rennie’s description has been broadcast to police officers across Dorset. Police forces nationwide have also been notified of his disappearance.
“The terms of Rennie’s release from prison on licence are that he permanently lives at the treatment centre in Weymouth so in leaving the premises and breaching his prison licence, he has to be arrested.”
Anyone who sees James Robertson Rennie should not approach him but call Dorset Police immediately by dialling 999 which is the same number for anyone with information about his whereabouts since he went missing.
